IRVINE, CA (March 19, 2015): The City of Irvine is updating the Parks and Facilities Master Plan, which will help guide future development and operation of City parks and recreational facilities.
The City is seeking community input to identify public park and recreation needs and to understand whether there are any changes that may be made to enhance visitors’ park experience. Once completed, the Master Plan will provide a framework for future projects and upgrades to new and existing parks and facilities over the next ten years.
The public is encouraged to share their ideas by participating in an interactive online survey at cityofirvine.org/parksmasterplan. The survey will end on Sunday, April 5.
A public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Irvine Civic Center, 1 Civic Center Plaza, Irvine. Information regarding the Parks and Facilities Master Plan and initial feedback gathered from the community will be presented during this meeting. A community workshop is planned for June 2015.
For more information about the Parks and Facilities Master Plan, contact Lana Weiss, Senior Planner, at 949-724-6651.
