Virginia Tech. Community Design Assistance Center


This project began when the Town of Wayland applied to the KY Division of Forestry for Southern Group of State Foresters grant funding. The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) was asked to lead a project team to design a park that would re-engage the community through recreational opportunities for both young and old while also highlighting the cultural heritage of the area. In particular, the Town stressed the desire for a little league baseball field as a means to bring more people to the area. The purpose of this project was to create a conceptual master plan and planting plan to provide the Town a basis in which to move forward with applying for grants and funding.

Throughout the design process, the Wayland Project Team, which consisted of the CDAC design team, representatives from Wayland, the Kentucky Division of Forestry, and Big Sandy Development District worked collaboratively to develop a conceptual plan for the Town of Wayland. This report documents the design process and describes the final concept that was developed.
