About the Comprehensive Parks, Recreation, Trails and Facilities Plan

The process to update the City’s Comprehensive Park, Recreation, Trail, and Facilities Plan is underway. We want to engage residents, businesses, park, recreation, and facility users to determine what you need and want your parks, trails, programs and facilities to be in the future.

The purpose of the Comprehensive Park, Recreation, Trail, and Facilities Plan is to develop a clear 10-15-year vision for the city related to parks, trails, recreation programs, and facilities.
