The goal of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan is to provide clear guidance on how to meet the demands for future recreational, programming, environmental, and maintenance needs, as well as to establish priorities for facility improvements, future park and trail development, and land acquisitions.
The Trail Strategy Plan will identify opportunities to upgrade existing trail corridors and expand the city’s trail network; prioritize trail improvement projects; and develop design standards and a funding and implementation plan. The Trails Strategy Plan will be coordinated with the update of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
The Urban Forest Management Plan is a roadmap that creates a shared vision for the future of a tree canopy. The first step is to assess all the trees within our the streets and parks. The collected data provides information to build a 40-year horizon plan that guides the City to proactively and effectively manage the urban forest, and provide for maximum, long-term benefits to the community.
The City Council adopted a plan to improve 14 city entries with granite and stone monument signs, lighting, and landscaping. These entries are planned for improvements over a period of years as partnership opportunities and funds become available.
