WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR THE
LANE COUNTY, OREGON
PARKS & OPEN SPACE MASTER PLAN UPDATE
The Lane County Parks Division is excited to release for your consideration, review, and comment, the Lane County Parks Master Plan Update! We want your comments on this DRAFT Master Plan Update and invite you to participate by submitting comments, attending one or more public meetings, or by submitting photos for consideration of inclusion into the final document.
How The Document is Organized:
The Master Plan is divided into three Sections:
- Section I contains chapters which focus on policies, visioning, and recommendations for the Lane County Parks System. Due to its focus, Section I is appropriately named "The Plan."
- Section II contains chapters which focus primarily on characterizing the overall parks system and provides information about the methodology and analysis of the development of the Master Plan.
- Section III contains the appendices which supported the development of the Master Plan or were assumed most appropriate as more discretionary support content.
