Justification

Vision 2030 recommended the following guiding principles for meeting future park and recreation needs in the County, which are reflected in the approved PROS 2017 plan service delivery strategy: balance renovation and conversion of older parks and facilities with new construction; respond to changing priorities by redefining existing land and facilities to provide different kinds of services; and deliver services to areas of highest need. This project will deliver amenities to urban parks which are in the areas of highest need. Approved plans and studies, including the 2018 Energized Public Spaces (EPS) Functional Master Plan, the 2019 Energized Public Spaces Design Guidelines, and the 2019 Site Suitability Study for Dog Parks.
