Northbrook Park District

Comprehensive Master Plan

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Master Plan?

A Master Plan is a document that provides recommendations for recreational facilities and services over a set period of time. The Northbrook Park District Master Plan Update will:

Assess existing properties, facilities, services, and operations

Determine community sentiment about existing properties, facilities, services, and operations

Recognize recreational prioritizations as identified by the community and Park District

Define strategic and measurable goals for the next five to ten years

Why is the Park District updating its Master Plan?

Northbrook Park District is halfway through its 2016-2026 Comprehensive Master Plan and is seeking to understand how residents view and use the District’s park and recreation offerings. The Park District will also be reassessing current offerings and resources, including items that have been implemented as a result of past Master Plan recommendations. This information will be used to help the Park District prioritize additional improvements over the next five years.

Who can contribute to the plan?

Everyone! Residents, stakeholders and employees can attend the community meeting and take part in the community input online portal. We thank you for your input!

What happens to the information I share?

Your responses will remain anonymous and will be grouped accordingly with all other solicited responses collected during the Connect Phase. These responses will be used to develop the strategies that will guide future actions.

When will the Master Plan be completed?

The Plan is scheduled to be published by the end of 2021. Check the Northbrook Park District website for additional information as the plan is developed.
