Recreation Facilities - Planning

​Recreation Facilities Strategic Plan

In September 2016, the City Council approved the Recreation Facilities Strategic Plan (RFSP). With a system of recreation centers and pools that is mostly 50+ years, the RFSP created a vision and plan for facilities that can better serve the community for the next 50 years.

Recreation Facilities Strategic Plan

Planning is currently under way to refine this vision into an actionable plan- identifying the specific spaces/facilities that should be provided at each location, reviewing and selecting from options that can achieve these preferred spaces/facilities, and costing out those choices so that a funding and implementation plan can be developed.

As planning and analysis has proceeded, a number of key trade-offs or questions arose. We conducted a community survey during the period of June 11-29 to obtain additional feedback about the priorities of these trade-offs and options. Select the link below to see the survey results report.
