City of San Angelo Seeking Input on Parks Master PlanPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX – The City of San Angelo is gathering citizen input as it explores how best to improve its parks, recreational facilities and programming. Citizens can take a short online survey at cosatx.us/ParkSurvey.
In October, the City held several public meetings to gather input and ideas to help shape the Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The online survey will be available through Dec. 15.
The City developed a plan in 2001 that was updated in 2005. A new plan was created in 2012. Master plans provide direction based on public input and desires for park development and recreation programming. Some direct results of previous plans include Kirby Community Park, the River project, the dog park and a new boat ramp at Lake Nasworthy, which is currently being designed.
Having an updated master plan also allows the City to compete for grants from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD). Since adoption of the 2001 plan, the City has earned nearly $2 million from TPWD for park and trail development. To remain competitive for state grant funding, a city must adopt an updated master plan every five years.
