The Park Planning Division provides long-range planning and implementation of new parks, regional trails, other open-space recreational facilities, and major upgrades to existing parks and trails. Park Planning updates the City's Parks and Trails Master Plan and prepares long-term capital budgets.
The rapid growth in this community has fueled a tremendous demand for neighborhood and regional parks, trails and the landscaping of facilities and rights-of-way. The City Council has mandated that a neighborhood park be located within a half mile of every resident. The Park Planning division was created in 2004, and is currently staffed by 3 landscape architects and support staff. Since 2004, this division designed and built multiple parks, trails and sports complexes.
