(Greensboro, NC) -- The City of Greensboro has terminated the employment of Director of Parks and Recreation Greg Jackson. Interim City Manager Denise Turner Roth has selected Chris Wilson, park management and operations division manager, to serve as interim director while a national search process for a new department head begins immediately.
Wilson has fulfilled various roles within the Parks and Recreation Department since 1992. As manager of the department's park management and operations division, he oversees the operations of the regional parks, gardens, trails and lakes, and cemeteries. Over the last several years, he has played a critical role in the development of several of the department's capital projects.
"We realize we have a strong parks and recreation department as a whole," says Roth. "Moving forward, our goal is to find a new director who can fulfill the City's vision for the future while continuing to support the employee base and enhance the programs, facilities and services that parks and recreation provides the community."
