The Master Plan process consists of five phases starting with the Analyze Phase – where BTPD park and recreation assets and issues within the parks, facilities, and programs are identified and the Park District is compared against local, state, and national recreation Benchmarks.
Next, the consultant team and BTPD 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 survey noted above.
During the Envision Phase, the consultants will build consensus with the Park District to determine the needs of the Bourbonnais Township 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.
