Strategies and Priorities - We Are Here
During a series of community workshops throughout the fall of 2018 and online questionnaires, OSMP shared preliminary Master Plan outcomes and strategies related to four Master Plan focus areas:
- Ecosystem Health and Resilience
- Responsible Recreation, Stewardship and Enjoyment
- Community Connection, Education and Inclusion
- Agriculture – Today and Tomorrow
Community input received will help staff refine strategies to achieve desired outcomes within each of these focus areas.
In March 2019, community members will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on the prioritization of strategies through a community workshop, micro-engagements throughout the community, an online questionnaire and a statistically-valid community survey. Community input received will help refine and prioritize strategies by integrating strategies across the focus areas and comparing them against three funding scenarios and financial sustainability strategies.
Draft Plan - Spring/Summer 2019
Community members will have opportunities to review and comment on the draft plan as it gets reviewed by the Planning Board, the Open Space Board of Trustees and City Council.
Final Plan - Late Summer 2019
The final version of the Master Plan will integrate feedback gathered throughout the entire process. The Master Plan will also have measurable outcomes for tracking progress over time.
Plan Implementation - Fall 2019
OSMP will use the Master Plan to guide development of annual work plans and collaborate with the community and agency partners during implementation.
