On July 26, 2010, City Council approved the undertaking of a combined effort to study parks revenue sources for parks maintenance and operations, and complete the update to the Salem Comprehensive Parks System Master Plan (CPSMP) utilizing a single Parks Revenue and Master Plan Task Force.
A Task Force was selected and represented by the Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (SPRAB), City Council, Salem Parks Foundation, Salem Area Chamber of Commerce, Salem-Keizer School District, the Latino Community, and At-Large members representing the North/Northeast, South/Southeast, and West Salem areas.
A contract Parks Planner was hired to complete much of the planning effort, which was also led and augmented with assistance from existing Parks and Transportation Services Division management staff, as well as a Technical Advisory Committee made up of staff representatives from various City departments, Marion County Parks Division, and the Salem-Keizer School District.
The plan was formally adopted by City Council on May 13, 2013. Background materials, and Task Force meeting agendas and minutes can be found by clicking on the links below. Many of the draft background documents listed were submitted in 2008 by the previous planning contractor, MIG Inc., and were reviewed by the committee and consultant as they proceeded in their policy deliberations and recommendations.
The adopted plan is available below in a full version (approximately 20mg) or by chapter for easier download capability.
