City of Chicopee seeking public’s input on Fairview Memorial Park project

Hampden County

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The City of Chicopee wants the public’s input on the design of the Fairview Memorial Park project.

The City is applying for a $5 million federal grant for the park’s revitalization. The grant request to the “Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership Grant Program” (ORLP) is funded through the U.S. Congress via the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

Two designs have been uploaded to the city’s website. Residents can submit comments on the designs by contacting the Chicopee Department of Planning & Development.

The park is the schoolyard for Fairview Elementary students as well as youth sports leagues, and Camp OPEE in the summer. It has not had significant upgrades since the 1990’s.
