The town of Matthews will host a meeting Jan. 5 to get public input and ideas for a park that will be built on Rice Road.
The meeting will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Matthews Community Center, 100 McDowell St., and follows an initial meeting held in November.
A conceptual plan for the 10-acre park, east of Sam Newell Road, can be found at http://bit.ly/1OoJWxD. The plan includes a basketball court, a playground, a lawn area, a paved walking trail, a picnic area and bike racks.
