If the Parks Referendum passes, what happens next?

If the Parks Referendum passes, City leaders will work to develop specific plans for each of the proposed projects. There will be public meetings scheduled for residents and neighbors to review plans before making final decisions. Improvements will likely begin in the spring of 2024 on some of the smaller projects (i.e. playgrounds, courts, trails). Some of the larger projects (Community Center, Aquatic Center, Redwood, Kelley) would take more time to plan, bid, and hire contractors. Overall, it will take three to five years to finish all the proposed projects.
