New Parks District System Plan
How can the Si View Metropolitan Park District meet your recreational needs?
We want to hear from you!
The Si View Metropolitan Parks District (SVMPD) is creating a new Parks District System Plan (also referred to as Comprehensive Plan) that will reflect community interests and establish long-term goals and priorities for land acquisition, facility development, recreation programming and parks management. Final review and adoption of the new Plan tentatively is scheduled for January 2017.
The Parks District System Plan will guide the District’s efforts and establish a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreation amenities across the district. The Plan will include a vision for the District’s park and recreation system, goals and objectives, a capital improvements and investment program, and implementation strategies for parks, natural areas and trails.
The new Parks District System Plan will help shape the delivery of parks and recreation services and is intended to be strategic in focus to help the District respond to three important questions:
Community input is important to make sure goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and interests. Opportunities for community involvement will ensure the Plan will serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the coming 6 to 10 years.
Please visit our online platform for the latest updates on the Plan, provide feedback and find more information about opportunities to be involved. A public Open House meeting is planned for Wednesday September 14th, 6-8pm at Si View Community Center to get community feedback on the direction of the Plan. Please drop in between the hours of 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. to share your ideas and comments about recreation programming and park and trail improvements.
Your input is absolutely crucial to make sure program priorities are consistent with community interests.
