The village will have a pair of public-input meetings to give residents a say on planned changes at two parks.

The meetings are part of the process as Wellington applies for two $50,000 grants -- one for Village Park and one for Greenbriar Park, said Finance Director Tanya Quickel.

Wellington in the past has successfully applied for grants through the Florida Recreational Development Assistance Program, Quickel said. Most recently, the village received $50,000 through the program for work at Scott's Place Playground.

The back-to-back meetings will be at 2 and 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in rooms 1E and 1F at Village Hall, 12300 Forest Hill Blvd. The Village Park grant application will be discussed first, followed by Greenbriar Park.

The grant would be used to build new shade structures and baseball dugouts at Village Park, Quickel said.

At Greenbriar Park, the money would be used to revamp the existing volleyball courts as the village eyes a larger-scale, $8 million project to add fields and facilities next to the dog park.

Lawmakers would approve or deny the grant requests during next year's legislative session, Quickel said.
