The consultant team collaborates with community leaders, starting with the Opportunity Analysis phase, to identify assets, issues, and strategies to meet the community’s objectives for the future of the parks. Preliminary strategies are based on local and regional market characteristics, physical, cultural, and financial resources, and the expectations and needs of stakeholders. This phase includes a survey and an interactive public workshop.
During the Preferred Strategy phase, the consultants will create consensus with community leaders on an overall strategy, including the most promising maintenance plans, public improvements, and community opportunities. At the end of this phase, which will include a public open house, the consultants will deliver a concise Strategy Statement, preliminary Framework, Appearance and Identity Plans, and preliminary Implementation Recommendations.
In the Master Plan phase, the consultant team will document the finalized recommendations including an implementation table outlining short-term (3-5 year) implementation projects, and step-by-step implementation guidance.
