The Parks & Recreation Master Plan is the road map that guides staff to help meeting the needs of current and future residents by positioning the City to build on the community’s unique parks and recreation assets, as well as identify new opportunities for everyone of all ages. The citizen driven six-year plan establishes a clear direction for the Parks & Recreation Department staff, Park Advisory Board and elected officials in their efforts to enhance the community’s parks and recreation programs, services and facilities.
Planning is Vital
The success of this process is built upon proper planning and preparation to seize opportunities. Our priority is to engage people to help ensure that the right actions are taken for the right reasons at the right time. The data we collect through various efforts of public input will strengthen the results of this planning effort and will help prioritize our needs and the actions we should pursue. It will also ensure continuity of direction as elected officials change and help us be more efficient with limited resources and funding.
At the Core of the Plan
Public participation is a fundamental part of this effort. This plan is driven by input and guidance received from the community. This process will begin with a citizen survey that will be implemented through a variety of outlets, opportunities and venues available to those who wish to participate over the course of 2020. The survey will gather important information regarding current parks and recreation related services and opportunities offered, as well as identify services that our residents value and would like to see in the future. The survey, while anonymous, does ask participants to provide their address to assure that we are receiving data from across the community and to verify that only one survey per household is included in the data. If left blank your information will not be included in the data.
Sharing the Results
Once all the data is collected and priorities are identified the Park Advisory Board will hold a series of public meetings to share the information gleaned from the survey with citizens and community stakeholders.
