City Council identified a Recreation and Parks Strategic Plan as a key initiative for Fiscal Year 2015. In April 2015, following a formal kick-off presentation to the City Council, staff began working with the community and Mack Cain Design Studios at Travis Pruitt and Associates to identify and prioritize the investments in recreation and park amenities for the next 10 years. The Recreation and Parks Strategic Plan is intended to be a reflection of the community’s needs and priorities for the provision of recreation sites, facilities, and programs.
The five-month planning process included extensive community outreach. Over 1,500 individuals participated in the planning process, which included interviews, surveys, community meetings, and social media interactions. Based on the input received, key consensus items include: acquisition of additional park land; expansion of recreational facilities; addition of multi-purpose turf athletic fields; development of an indoor recreation center; expansion of facilities and programs for seniors; addition of a cricket field; connectivity between parks and activity centers; a broader range of programs to serve all age groups; planning for a city-wide recreational greenway/trail system; improvements to existing facility maintenance
