Every five years the City is required to update the Parks and Recreation Master Plan to be eligible for certain grants. The current Master Plan was adopted in 2015 so it is due for an update. A Master Plan is a statement of community goals and objectives, and establishes a vision of the future. Because it is visionary in nature, the goals are not always achievable because of the City's limited budget so the Master Plan provides insight into what the community values so the City can focus on those goals.
Resident input drives the Master Plan process so the City has two methods for residents to become involved. There is an online survey on our website and a drop-in Community Open House on Thursday, October 3rd from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Gillham Recreation Center. The survey should take 10 - 15 minutes to complete and your answers will tell the city what you like, don't like or would like to change about the City's parks and recreation system. Or residents can attend the Open House and answer the same questions or ask questions about the process.
Please join us on October 3, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 pm for a chance to have a direct influence on recreation development in the city. We will be having a drop-in open house at the Rec Center. You will be able to provide input on the state of parks, recreation facilities, and programming. The city has also created an online survey.
