Open Space, Recreation, & MultiUse Trail Plan

We need YOU to help us create a plan for how we grow and manage our open space, our recreation, and our multiuse trails.

1. Visit our interactive site to let us know what open space, recreation and trails you need and what you think we need

The Open Space, Recreation, and MultiUse Trail Plan (2011-2018) is the city's blueprint for all land acquisition, capital investment, and management strategies.

The City is in the process of revising that plan for the next seven years.  To collect input we met with all of the boards involved in open space, recreation, and MultiUse Trails, the Conservation Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission, Transportation and Parking Commission, Agriculture Commission, Disabilities Commission, Youth Commission, and City Council. Held a rolling public workshop along the city's multiuse trails and additional traditional public workshops and used Wiki Mapping for interactive online citizen input. The final plan is expected to be adopted June 2017.
