The newest draft of the Parks & Recreation master plan reflects some familiar requests from the Victoria community: a dog park, more trail connectivity, better upkeep of facilities and other improvements that could encourage residents to go out and enjoy Victoria’s parks.
“Master planning is truly a community-driven effort, and we appreciate the input we’ve received from hundreds of residents,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jason Alfaro. “We’re confident that residents will be happy with the finished product.”
The proposed master plan will be on display during an open house 5-7 p.m. Oct. 21 at the Community Center dome, 2905 E. North St. Representatives from Parks & Recreation and consulting firm Halff Associates will be present to discuss the plan with residents.
The plan can also be viewed online at www.victoriatx.gov/masterplans.
The changes described in the plan are not set in stone; instead, the document is a guide that outlines projects that fit the community’s needs and identifies funding sources and partnerships that could help to make these projects a reality.
Residents who would like to comment on the master plan can fill out the comment cards provided at the event or contact Alfaro at 361-485-3200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The plan will be presented to the City Council for possible adoption during the Nov. 16 council meeting.
