The City has finished the second round of community outreach on the three park design layouts, also called master plan alternatives. More information about the Concepts can be found under the 'Concept Alternatives' tab of this project webpage. Stay tuned for the third round of outreach in early 2023 where the City will present a preferred plan for each park.
WHAT IS A MASTER PLAN?
A master plan is a conceptual design that is used as a guiding document for implementing future improvements at a park. A master plan is a multi-step process that receives input and direction from the public, City Council, and Parks & Recreation Commission. During the early stages of this process, long-term goals and objectives will be established to guide the development of design alternatives. Once design alternatives have been refined in to a final conceptual design, the next step is to determine a phasing and implementation schedule, based on recommended priorities from the public, City Council, and Parks & Recreation Commission. It is important to note that a master plan is conceptual and continues to be refined during the design phase, which can take several years to implement.
A total of $275,000 is allocated in the 2021-2022 Parks CIP budget for the Beaton Hill Park and Big Rock Park South Master Plan and is inclusive of all planning and design costs.
