Comprehensive Plan (2011)

The Comprehensive Park and Recreation Plan is a broad-based, citizen-driven directive that presents the vision, guiding principles, issues, opportunities, and recommendations for the Boise Parks & Recreation Department for the next five years.

The plan was coordinated by Cheyne Weston, Park Development Coordinator, and Doug Holloway, Superintendent of Recreation. They worked closely with a 15-member citizen steering committee, whose members included representatives of the Board of Park & Recreation Commission, Boise School District, neighborhood associations, user groups and other organizations.

The plan covers a broad range of issues -- from parks, open space and natural areas to community centers, picnic shelters, swimming pools, health & wellness initiatives, recreation programming, environmental sustainability, partnerships and funding. It builds on the past and prepares for the future.

The Comprehensive Plan will be reviewed on February 16, 2012 by the Boise Parks & Recreation Commission. The plan will be reviewed by the Boise City Planning & Zoning Commission and then submitted to the Mayor and Boise City Council.
