What is a system plan?
A system plan essentially documents where you are, defines where you want to go and includes steps as to how to get there. It is a tool to ensure that there is a diversity of opportunities for users and that each park or trail serves a unique role within the system minimizing the risk that all parks or trails will be cookie cutter and offer the same package of amenities.
It also an opportunity to do a deep dive into big, burning questions – like how do to plan and prepare for population growth and continued land development. It explores what is changing in the world and how it relates to parks/trail/nature-based education and recreation offerings.When complete, the system plan will determine the general size, location and composition of parks, trails and facilities, solidify the role and focus of programming, define our core competencies and more. It will likely be used to help set direction and priorities and may be used as the foundation for organizational structure, policy, budgets, operation and more.
How is a system plan different than a master plan?
