Community Engagement Project

Parks & Recreation is working to advance the 21st Century Parks vision by engaging with community members regarding their experiences and recommendations for facility and programming improvements to Aldrich and Charles M. Schulz - Highland Arenas. A facility plan is being created to address critical infrastructure needs, improve user experience and expand access to better serve all residents. There are in-person community engagement opportunities scheduled in July and an online survey starting at the end of June.
