Heritage Park – Day at the Park

May 26, 2015

The James E. Worrall Foundation invites the citizens of Perry to attend the First Annual “Heritage Park – Day at the Park” fundraiser being held on Saturday, May 30, 2015. This event will be a pet-friendly, family-style picnic and fundraiser at the site of what will become Heritage Park. The event will run from 11 AM to 2 PM at Heritage Park, 2005 Sam Nunn Blvd, Perry, Ga 31069. Guests are invited to bring their families, pets, blankets, and lawn chairs, and enjoy a picnic lunch served by The Worrall Foundation. There will be live entertainment and games for children to enjoy. Attendees will have the privilege of viewing the development plans for the future park area and learning more about The Worrall Foundation.   “Our goals for this event are to acquaint the community with our plans for this passive green park as well as raise money for those plans,” says John Hulbert, Co-President of The Worrall Foundation. “Heritage Park will be a community asset for public use, and it is important that we have the support of the community, not only in order to reach our financial goals but also to ensure the longevity of the development.” Funds raised at this event will go towards the build-out of the structural enhancements for this park.   The Worrall Foundation has been working closely with the City of Perry to develop the strategic plan for recreational growth and opportunities for the city. The need for additional parks and green space has been defined as one of those opportunities. The Worrall Foundation is working with the City to develop these 20+ acres into a passive park that will offer various recreational activities. Long term, the vision is to make Heritage Park one of the anchors of the Perry Greenway. The Worrall Foundation has set a goal to raise $300,000 in funds in 2015 to complete the plans for this park. Individuals who cannot attend the Day at the Park event but would like to support the cause can make donations at www.crowdrise.com/perryheritagepark.   The James E. Worrall Foundation is a living legacy to honor the late Mayor James E. Worrall and his 20 years of service to the city of Perry. The James E. Worrall Foundation works to promote recreational activities within the City of Perry by serving as a vehicle to solicit and accept contributions, gifts, grants, and other donations of property to further Mayor Worrall’s goal of improving opportunities for the community’s youth. The Worrall Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3). For more information, visit: www.worrallfoundation.org and www.facebook.com/worrallfoundation.

City of Perry Releases Redesigned Website

March 25, 2015

The City of Perry is pleased to announce the release of its newly redesigned website at www.perry-ga.gov.  This new website was designed to more effectively provide information to residents, businesses and visitors to the city–especially those who visit the site using mobile or tablet devices.  Many of the design and functionality features on the new site were requested by residents and visitors through a survey released last year that received over 60 responses.   In addition, city staff and council members provided input throughout the development to ensure that the new site serves the informational needs of all departments.  “We are very excited about using our new website to support the services we provide,” said Brenda King, Director of Administration for the City, “and we are confident that our visitors will find it to be an easy and convenient way to interact with council members and city staff.” The City’s new website was developed in partnership with the Middle Georgia Regional Commission (MGRC), a regional planning organization that supports community and economic development through service to its member local governments and partner agencies.  “A quality web presence is essential as it is increasingly the primary means for visitors to obtain information about your city and the services you offer,” said Nick Kouloungis, Director of Technology Services at the MGRC.  “Our approach for designing the website was to create an engaging site that is easy to use and provides visitors with their desired information as efficiently as possible.” On the homepage of the new site, visitors are now presented with three primary content sections for Live, Work, and Play.  Click “Live” to learn more about the quality municipal services that residents enjoy and why the City of Perry is one of the fastest growing cities in Middle Georgia.  Click “Work” to learn more about business support services the City provides and why Perry is a great place to start or grow your business.  And finally, click “Play” to learn about area attractions and discover the amenities that make Perry’s quality of life second to none.
