Planning for the Future
If you could design the city park of the future, what would it look like? Would it be large and centrally located, or smaller and tucked away in your neighborhood? Would it have playgrounds, ball fields and a climbing wall, or would it invite more passive outdoor activities? What about the city’s future recreation programs and the changing needs of our older population? What classes would be offered and where?
The Parks & Recreation Department is developing an updated plan for future parks and recreation services to ensure resources are aligned with current and future trends, community values and the city’s changing demographics. To review the draft, please click on the link below.
A summary of report edits:
Since the draft report was first distributed and posted on the city’s website on Oct. 31, staff and the city’s consultant added minor revisions (Nov. 8), including:
As a result of updates to page 78 of the report, the equity (service area) maps were revised as needed for the final report (Exhibit 1, pp. 81-93).
After the Nov. 12 City Council workshop:
Senior Commission Agenda Bill
Parks & Recreation Commission Agenda Bill
Funding and revenue strategies (Exhibit 1, p. 106) and a conclusion (Exhibit 1, pp. 18 and 110) were added to the report. The funding and revenue strategies are typically added to the final version of the report after the draft recommendations are presented and feedback is received from the City Council
