On Wednesday, May 9, at a legislative hearing to consider recommending adoption of the City’s Parks & Recreation Master Plan to City Council, the Planning Commission approved a motion to continue the hearing to August 8, keeping the record open for additional testimony.
The two-month stay provides City staff additional time to address questions presented by City Council during its May 7 work session and to consider public testimony introduced at the May 9 meeting.
The Parks and Recreation Master Plan provides a community-driven vision and long-range guide for Wilsonville’s parks, facilities and community programs. This update to the 2007 Parks and Recreation Master Plan addresses deficiencies, amends goals, and identifies needs for future park development, recreational services, trails, and open space preservation. Additionally, it prioritizes short-term and long-term needs and provides approximate costs of improvements and additions.
Informed by extensive community engagement with residents, business owners, and other stakeholders, the Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a collaboration between City staff and GreenPlay, LLC, a national consulting firm that specializes in facilitating, researching and developing park and recreation master plans.
