Share feedback at Shakopee Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan Open House Aug. 5
Attendees are invited to provide feedback on city parks plan draft
SHAKOPEE, MINN. – Residents are invited to provide feedback on the future of Shakopee’s parks system by attending an open house event from 5:30-7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5 at the Shakopee Community Center, 1255 Fuller St. S.
The Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan began as a spin off from the 2040 Envision Shakopee Comprehensive Plan update process. During the Envision Shakopee process, city leaders and staff recognized that Shakopee’s park system required more extensive planning and community participation to ensure the plan fits the city’s long-term needs.
The Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan will guide the city’s park development, maintenance and programming for the next decade, aiding the city in better providing services for its residents and creating consistent standards for future parks, so all residents of Shakopee may enjoy a first-class park near their home. The Master Plan will unveil ambitious plans and goals for the city’s parks and trails based upon feedback which staff and the city’s consultant, Confluence, heard through the Comprehensive Plan process and the additional and continuous outreach done with the Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan steering committee.
At the open house, community members will have an opportunity to view the Master Plan draft before it goes to the Shakopee City Council. City leaders and staff encourage residents to see the potential future of Shakopee’s parks and provide further feedback to ensure the plan truly is the vision of its residents.
For residents who cannot attend the Aug. 5 meeting, the draft will also be posted on the city website for public comment. For more information, visit www.ShakopeeMN.gov/recreation/parks-trails/parks-trails-projects/parks-master-plan.
