Planning and Development Newsletter
We produce a newsletter approximately 3-4 times per year that provides a summary of our major and some smaller projects. You can access the latest edition of the newsletter here: Planning and Development Newsletter
You can also find pages devoted to our two Master Plans; one for the parks system and the other for the trails system. The Master Plan documents were developed with extensive public input and provide guidance in the Parks and Recreation department’s efforts to meet growing need and public demand for improvements for recreational, environmental, and pedestrian/bicycle transportation.
