BACKGROUND

The Parks and Recreation Policy Plan was last updated in 2008. The needs of our community are continually evolving, and so has the needs and expectations of the Parks system and the City’s recreation facilities.

This Master Plan process presents a great opportunity to align the vision, goals, and standards of our Parks and Recreation Facilities with evolving community needs and the many bold ideas presented in City Plan.

Key outcomes for the planning process include:

  1. Vision, goals and metrics
  2. Needed parks and recreation facilities
  3. Build out strategy
  4. Design standards and guidelines
  5. Strategy for special interest group requests
  6. Community health alignment
  7. Park design process
  8. Park refresh strategy
  9. Lifecycle strategies
  10. Paved trails
