Phase 1: Parks Evaluation: This phase involves looking closely at everything as it is right now. 

Key steps that will occur as part of this process include:

  • Conducting a complete inventory of parks, facilities, recreation trails

Phase 2: Community Needs: This phase involve reaching out to City residents and park users for input!

Key steps that will occur as part of this process include:

  • Conducting a city-wide survey
    • You can take this survey online, or fill out a paper survey. 
    • This survey will be available in many ways, such as the city website, water bill inserts, pop-events, virtual outreach meetings and at our community centers. 
  • Holding Virtual Outreach meetings and Pop-Up events
    • Dates will be announced on the city website and via social media. 
  • Identify Needs based on community input.

Phase 3: Priority Projects: This phase will put together the information collected from Phases 1 and 2.

Key results that will occur as part of this process include: 

  • Development of new system-wide policies
