Develop a Great Parks and Recreation Master Plan
Great Parks and Recreation Systems are built on strong planning efforts, a shared-community vision, and a bold, achievable implementation plan. This Master Plan is driven by community needs, wants and priorities. The plan should be visionary and aspirational, while providing clear implementation steps for the advancement of Your Vision.
The Plan should be conducted through a highly inclusive process that energizes staff and leadership and integrates seamlessly with other City initiatives. Because this Plan is bult on the communities needs and priorities, all aspects of the process should be unique to Tampa.
Integrate the PRMP Seamlessly with Other City Initiatives
The City of Tampa has a rich history of developing bold, visionary planning initiatives to help advance a high quality of life for its residents. Throughout development of the plan, we will review existing city initiatives surrounding transportation and stormwater, urban design, economic development, conservation, sustainability and resilience to establish long-term goals for the park that align and complement existing city priorities. We will utilize an integrated and collaborative approach to identify linkages and innovative options that focus on the unique needs of the parks, while simultaneously complementing the goals of multiple departments.
