City wants input on Carter Park
Half Moon Bay residents have a chance to put their mark on a sometimes forgotten park, the John L. Carter Memorial Park. The city of Half Moon Bay is seeking feedback in an early design phase and asking residents to fill out an online survey on park improvements.
The overall purpose of this project is to develop a long-term plan for the site and identify projects that may be completed in the near term to improve the park.
To fill out the survey, visit hmbcity.com/carterparks.
Residents are also invited to attend a workshop at the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting at 6 p.m. on June 26 at the Half Moon Bay Library.
