Optimized Plan

What is an Optimized Plan? Glad you asked!

An Optimized Plan is a strategic planning document that provides guidance over the next 10+ years. It studies the existing parks and recreation facilities and programs to identify a planning blueprint for making the District’s current recreation and park offerings as perfect, effective, or functional as possible into the future.

A forward-thinking Optimized Plan will provide a long-term vision for the District as well as specific policies and standards to direct day-to-day decisions. It will set forth a framework that will allow the District to respond to new opportunities as they arise, to outline a process for continued improvement, and to ensure that adequate parks and recreation facilities meet the needs of current and future residents.

Here's Where You Come In

The Optimized Plan is only as good as the community behind the ideas.
Beginning in Fall 2022, we will be hosting an online survey and other activities—both virtual and in-person—in the community to hear from residents across the District. Emails and comments are always accepted and can provide valuable input or ideas for parks and recreation development. Learn more below about how to engage with us during the planning process.
