On August 6, 2014 the community driven and professionally facilitated PLAN Your PARKS process recommendations were presented to Town Council.

After a succinct presentation of the conceptual park plans, proposed location of a Recreation Center & Aquatic Facility and short-term projects by staff, Town Council acknowledged and recognized the public for their participation in the interactive and engaging parks planning process.  Following deliberation, Town Council unanimously accepted the preferred conceptual community designs of each of the four parks sites, but did not take any further action at this time.

The Staff Report identifying the preferred conceptual park designs of the four park sites and short-term park projects can be viewed online

Thank you again for being part of your town’s recreation future by attending the PLAN Your PARKS workshops and for making our life better now and in the future!

For more information about “Plan Your Parks” please contact Recreation Manager, Stuart Brown at (760) 934-8989 ext. 210.
