2022 – 2026 Greenways Strategic Plan

The Parks and Recreation Department and the Greenways Advisory Committee (GAC) are pleased to announce the drafting of an updated strategic plan.

The Greenways Strategic Plan (the Plan) recommends funding priorities for Greenways levy funds in three categories: property acquisitions, development, and maintenance. The Plan improves consistency with the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan, describes the objectives of the program, and integrates priorities into the biennial budget. The October 26, 2022 Draft Plan is available and is subject of a City Council public hearing on December 12, 2022.

Funding

The Plan was completed in-house as a collaboration between Parks Dept. staff and members of the Greenways Advisory Committee. Projects included in the Plan may use Greenways levy funds in addition to grants and other Parks funding sources.
