The Carnegie Advisory Team (CAT) mission is to provide input on park projects and operations that relate to the user’s recreational experience and safety. The overall goal is to give stakeholders a voice with park staff to present ideas, complaints, and views on current projects, future projects, operations, and public outreach. CAT meetings provide a forum for park staff to inform stakeholders on park functions, park planning, and regulations and how they pertain to the way the park is or will be operated.

This partnership allows management to hear the visitor’s ideas and concerns and consider them when making decisions on activities that will affect the park. The partnership also brings transparency to the stakeholders on management decisions regarding park planning and operations. 

Meetings are typically held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 4:30 pm to discuss new projects in the park and any relevant park updates. Duties also include trail creation and review, educating other visitors and point of contacts for the public to voice concerns and discuss with park staff. If you are interested in joing these meetings please contact
