Draft Master Plan Concepts Survey  

 

Your feedback is important! A planning process is underway to develop a Regional Park vision and master plan that will protect the site’s natural character while allowing for public access, education and recreation. Your input on the two concepts will inform the team’s next step – to combine the best parts of each into a final concept for public review this Fall.

The August 19th virtual public meeting recording summarizes the project background, site context, engagement process and the two master plan concepts.

This survey closed September 10, 2021.
