Community Survey: Future Park & Trail Improvements
AUBURN, Calif. -Placer County recreation planners are asking residents to take a 15-minute online survey to share their thoughts on the future of the county's parks, trails, open spaces and beaches.
The feedback will be used to develop a 10-year vision for recreation improvements in Placer County.
"Our communities are passionate about enjoying and taking care of the parks and incredible landscapes we are so fortunate to have here in Placer," said Placer County Parks Administrator Andy Fisher. "As we plan for the decade to come, we need input from everyone to ensure we are making the improvements that all of our residents want to see."
The survey is available at placerparksplan.com and will be open to responses through May 15.
In October 2016, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved a consultant agreement with Design Workshop Inc. to prepare the county's first-ever parks and trails master plan, intended to reflect the recreational needs of all Placer communities. For instance, Granite Bay and Loomis could receive resources to meet league play demands while improvements in eastern Placer County could include more trails for summer and indoor recreation opportunities for winter.
Additional outreach efforts will include workshops, focus groups and public meetings. Completing the master plan is expected to take about a year. The plan will update the county's general plan standards put in place in 1994 and take into account new trends and demographics.
As part of the plan the county will also work with neighboring agencies, such as the town of Truckee, California State Parks, U.S. Forest Service and various cities, to further develop a connected trail network throughout the region.
