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.

Optimized Plan Final Documents

The Optimized Plan was adopted by the District's Board of Directors at their regularly scheduled meeting on May 15, 2024.
