Background

Background

A Service Area Master Plan is a document that:

  • Takes a complete look at all outdoor park assets: fields, playgrounds, paths, etc. (buildings are not included in this Master Plan, but will be considered system-wide at a later date)
  • Sets a vision for operations, management, and improvements
  • Creates improvement plans for each neighborhood park
  • Sets priorities and estimates budgets
  • Guides decisions on capital improvements, land acquisition, and development of new parks.
