East Bay Regional Parks District Master Plan Update Public Meetings

From ebparks.org:

EBRPD Master Plan

The East Bay Regional Park District is updating the Park District¹s Master Plan, a policy document that guides the District in future expansion of parks, trails, and services. The District provides and manages the regional parks for Alameda and Contra Costa counties, a 1,700 square mile area which is home to over 2.5 million people. The District manages 65 regional parks, over 112,000 acres of open space, and 1,200 miles of trails.

The Master Plan defines the vision and mission of the Park District and sets priorities for at least the next decade. The policies set forth in the Master Plan help guide the stewardship and development of current and future parks to maintain a careful balance between the need to protect and conserve natural resources, while offering recreational use of parklands for all to enjoy. Accompanying the plan is the Master Plan Map which was updated in 2008 and outlines several proposed new areas within the Park District’s jurisdiction.

The Park District seeks public input through meetings, surveys, focus groups, and other community outreach. If you would like to be involved, please send a request to info@ebparks.org for email notifications of upcoming information sessions and public meetings, which are anticipated to be completed in late 2012.
