The Master Plan consists of five phases starting with the Analyze Phase, a process to identify park and recreation assets and issues within the parks, facilities, and programs.
Next, the consultant team and Park District will collect public opinion to understand how residents use the Park District’s offerings and to identify future needs in the Connect Phase. This phase includes the online community input portal and community meeting.
During the Envision Phase, the consultants will create consensus with community leaders on the needs of the Northfield Park District for the next five years. The consultants will also develop preliminary strategies based on local and regional market characteristics, physical, cultural, and financial resources, and the expectations and needs of the stakeholders during this phase.
