Our Promise to You

Efforts to refine the Master Plan are anticipated to continue until early fall 2017. This phase of the project is built around the following engagement goals:
  • We will keep residents informed and simplify opportunities for community involvement. 
  • We will engage residents, Task Force members and County advisory groups and park users in Master Plan decision-making. 
  • We will build on the community insights and information already collected. 
  • We will assemble and communicate community priorities and use those priorities to guide Master Plan recommendations and our future vision for services. 
  • We will work together to foster long term support for Lane County parks and open space by developing a Master Plan that is practical yet farsighted.

 Background Information

Through an ongoing effort, Lane County has been in the process of updating our Parks & Open Space Master Plan. A great deal of information was collected and presented in a August 2015 Draft Master Plan. Many residents and stakeholders provided valuable comments and insights on this preliminary draft. Building on this foundation of information, we are launching another phase in the planning process to involve residents, a project Task Force and other advisory groups in identifying best practices and the community’s vision and goals for the parks system.

August 2015 Draft


Task Force
The County created a Task Force of engaged volunteers
with interests in many different topics related to Lane County Parks.
