Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Five-Year Strategic Plan (2017-2021)This five-year strategic plan covers the years 2017–2021, and is an expression of the community's objectives, needs and priorities for leisure space, facilities, programs and service delivery.
It provides guidance for policy formulation and the decision-making process as it relates to the quality and location of recreational opportunities. The goal of the 2017 Plan is to accurately reflect community desires while presenting imaginative new recreational opportunities that are functional, realistic, cost-effective, and practical to implement.
Updates to this plan have been prepared at roughly five-year intervals since the original plan was drafted in 1969. Traditionally, the plans have focused on identifying land acquisition needs, improvements to existing parks and facilities, and advancing recommendations for new parks, trails and linkages. In addition, the 2017 Plan addressed cultural arts and historic resources, which are under the jurisdiction of the Roswell Recreation & Parks Department.
