CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – City officials are partnering up with Coastal Carolina University to enhance and improve recreational assets the City of Conway has to offer.
City Administrator Adam Emrick said a group at CCU looked at the way the city operates when it comes to recreation. A group of students and faculty came up with ideas on how to improve what is already here and add to the facilities and programs that already exist in Conway.
Emrick said Conway is welcoming a new population to the area, and the city is experiencing an increase in population numbers, which they haven't seen before. City and CCU officials plan on reaching out to new community members to show them what the city has to offer.
Rockey said promoting is key. Combining resources - like promoting different events and actually bringing people to the parks so they can see what's here - in an effort to make them more popular.
Moving forward, Rockey said CCU will make suggestions to the City of Conway on how to improve some of the parks and bike trails in the city.
