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
The plan is being coordinated by Cheyne Weston, Park Development
Coordinator, and Doug Holloway, Superintendent of Recreation. They
are working closely with a 15-member citizen steering committee,
whose members include 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.
