Special thanks to the citizens who participated in the public input meetings conducted from December 2007 to April 2008 and the additional public meetings in April 2009 as part of the Long Range Planning Process.
PURPOSE: to update the 1998 Long Range Plan for Land and Facilities. The 2011 Plan reviews the goals and priorities established by the 1998 Plan and provides an assessment of the Department’s existing land, facilities and programs.
GOAL: to provide a guide for future growth and development of Austin’s parks and recreation system. The Plan responds to citizens needs for parks, trails, programs, preservation of environmental and ecologically sensitive areas unique to the region, park standards, best management practices (bmp), land stewardship and national and Department standards. The Plan also provides recommendations based on demographic research, public input, service analysis, neighborhood plans, greenprinting and surveys.
