The City of Richland is updating the Parks & Recreation Master Plan. The new plan will establish a vision for the park system and provide guidance for parks, trails, recreation facilities and programs to address community needs through 2025.
The City has hired project consultants Michael Terrell Landscape Architecture, PLLC, to assist with the plan update. The plan will be a practical tool to guide the park and recreation system's development/redevelopment for another 5-7 years. It will help the community prioritize programs and projects as decisions are made about how to utilize limited resources.
How Can You Help?
Over the next several months, City staff and the project consultant will be looking at the parks and recreation opportunities currently available in Richland -- and seeking feedback from residents on how the system can be developed, re-developed, enhanced and maintained.
The online survey period has closed. Thank you all who participated.
We want your input for our 2019-2025 Parks & Recreation Master Plan Update. Your thoughts are critical to help Richland identify projects, initiatives and opportunities to shape the future of the city's parks and recreation system.
