Following months of gathering public input, Merriam City Council formally acknowledged the completion of a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan, at tonight's meeting.
A team of consultants partnered with a steering committee of residents to develop the plan based on studies and focus groups, surveys, tours and public meetings. No formal action was required by council at this time. Discussions about Parks & Rec facilities options are expected to continue in the following months, and is anticipated to be part of upcoming budget and capital improvements planning discussions.
The Master Plan is now available on Merriam's website:
