County to Host Community Listening Sessions to Reimagine Latta Place
Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation (MCPR) is hosting three listening sessions to hear your feedback on the initial master planning recommendations for Latta Place.
MCPR is working with Design Minds, an interpretive planning consulting firm, to reimagine the Latta site and visitor experience, including structures, history, community ties, and programming. Your feedback is desired to ensure all perspectives are heard in the process of reimagining and revisiting operations for the site. Latta Place Community Listening Sessions:
About Latta Place Reimagined
In June of 2021, Mecklenburg County closed the Latta site and opted not to renew its contract with Historic Latta, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization that had operated the site since the 1970s. The County convened a group of diverse stakeholders including historians, community leaders, descendants, natural resource experts, and County executives to reimagine the Latta site and work to reopen it in phases.
