Parks & Recreation Master Plan Title PageIn 2008, the City began the process of developing a comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan to guide future development and enhancement of our City parks and recreational programming for the next 10 - 15 years. After the initial information gathering phase was completed, interviews were held with stakeholder groups and park users, and a statistically valid survey instrument was randomly mailed to 2,100 residents. In addition, the consultant received valuable public input during the Park Workshop held at City Hall on October 27, 2008. After prioritization was complete, a draft plan was presented and thoroughly reviewed by members of the subcommittee and city staff. Once approved by the subcommittee the draft plan was presented to the public in early April. The public voiced overwhelming support for the plan as did the Park and Recreation Committee.

On June 1, 2009, the City Council adopted the 2009 Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
