2. PRESENT and
DISCUSS PARKS and RECREATION DRAFT MASTER PLAN
Brokke introduced Master Plan
Michael Schroeder from LHB was

diversity, need for shelter upgrades and served as a design demonstration more
than a concept development.

Commission wide discussion followed with many around the table
suggesting that the document presents the Southwest Corner situation exactly as

MASTER PLAN NEXT STEPS
Brokke introduced the Master Plan implementation process.
Citizen involvement will be as important in this stage as it was in the master
plan update stage. Jill Anfang will be taking on a leadership role in the
Anfang outlined some early
thoughts on the implementation process. She talked about how the
implementation process needs to be a grass roots initiative with participation
by a wide range of community members. It has been suggested that a core team
of community leaders work with a larger group of community representatives to
educate and communicate the Master Plan findings, promote the implementation
process and support a referendum for maintenance and development. Traits for
the core implementation team include (but are not limited to) heart and
passion, business and financial skills, communications and promotions skills, and
community and political connections. Azer suggested adding a volunteer
coordinator to the core team to organize and coordinate the larger work group.
There is a place for everyone
interested in being involved in the master plan implementation process; work
groups will have broad representation and can include constellation
representatives, association and affiliation representatives, special interest
groups, commissioners and master plan citizen advisory team members. Commissioner
Doneen suggested adding community members with a connection or interest in the Master
Plan key recommendations (i.e. trailways and connectivity, implementation of
the constellation concept, community center).
The Master Plan Update involved
extensive community input. A necessary implementation component is a
statistically valid survey to support earlier findings and give direction for
the implementation process.
A preliminary, generalized
timeline was shared;
