Why is the City putting forward an investment plan for the park system at this time?

As our City has grown, there has been an increased demand of our parks and recreation system. Reinvesting in our City's parks, trails, and recreational facilities will help us continue to provide for our residents, protect property values, enhance the natural environment, attract new residents, and draw visitors to local businesses, which helps support the local economy. The Parks Referendum is being presented as a direct response to residents’ requests for improvements to our parks system. After thorough research and public input, the proposed projects have been identified as priorities by the community.
