WORK IN PROGRESS — Though work on the Pigeon Community Park hasn’t even started, people in the neighborhood have already been using it.

The Town of Waynesville and the Pigeon Street Community Center will host a public meeting to discuss the town park property at Calvary and Craven Streets and the nomination of the Pigeon Community Center to the National Register of Historic Places.

The meeting will be held at the Pigeon Community Center at 450 Pigeon St. at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15.

The Town of Waynesville has been working with a neighborhood committee, the Parks and Recreation Commission and surveyor, engineer and construction professionals concerning the park development and amenities.

The town has also contracted with historic consultant Sybil Argintar to pursue a nomination of the Pigeon Community Center to the National Register.

This effort continues her work with Lin Forney and local residents to document the historic resources of the Pigeon Community that the Town’s Historic Preservation Commission initiated in 2018.

Contact the Town Development Services Department at 456-8647 for more information on either of those projects and the public meeting.
