Park system master plan underway

What do you see in the future of Bloomington parks? The Park System Master Plan is a road map for planning and completing park improvements, helping the City decide what parks to focus on first in the future and ensure changes and investments to a City park fit into the bigger picture of serving the needs of the community today and long term. The Park System Master Plan will consider local and national park and recreation trends, community demographics, facility needs, current and future programming needs, maintenance, long-term sustainability, and most importantly information gathered from the community. It will be the foundation for future decision-making, program planning, budgeting and park system investments. 

Based on your comments provided earlier in the year, City staff are preparing a draft vision statement, goals and guiding principles for the plan. For more information or to provide input on the draft plan go to blm.mn/parks 2020.
