As a part of the city wide Comprehensive Plan update, the Parks and Recreation Department will update to the 2010 Parks, Recreation and Open Space Strategic Plan. Design Workshop was selected to lead the City wide Comprehensive Planning efforts, and Pro’s Consulting is the sub-consultant that will lead the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Strategic Plan section.
The entire strategic planning process is anticipated to be completed in 12 months.
From November 2016 until January 2017, a community needs-assessment survey was completed to gather resident input. The survey was completed by 395 citizens.
The community needs-assessment survey data, along with other data points were presented in a public meeting on Tuesday, May 30th. The presentation covered key findings of the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Strategic Plan including: comprehensive plan goals for the Parks and Recreation Department; stakeholder and focus group key themes; priority rankings for programs and facilities’; levels of service for the Parks and Recreation System and identification of system gaps through mapping.
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Strategic Plan will be a part of the City wide comprehensive plan, Envision New Braunfels. Click here for more information about the city wide Envision New Braunfels plan.
