Parks and Open Space Advisory Commission
The Parks and Open Space Advisory Commission advises and makes recommendations to the City Council on
developing and updating the Parks and Open Space Plan. The Commission recommends projects to be funded from
the proceeds of the .25% Parks and Open Space Sales and Use Tax. To be considered for funding, projects must
be part of the Master Plan and must take into consideration costs for design, construction and ongoing maintenance.
Open space projects include the acquisition of land for the preservation of wildlife, wetlands, view corridors and other
sensitive ecosystems. Open space may also be acquired as part of a future park site or to provide buffers between
neighborhoods. Parks projects include interconnected trail systems, passive parks for family recreation and active
parks for a variety of youth and adult sports activities.
