Funding for capital projects is prioritized based on:

  1. Public Health & Safety
  2. Existing Assets (i.e. taking care of what we have)
  3. Customer Enhancements
  4. System Expansion and New Amenities

 A condition rating of the assets in each park is used to allocate capital improvement dollars for park projects primarily in numbers 1 and 2. The different park assets are listed in the legend for the 2019/2020 Parks Plan PDF View our Neighborhood Park Recreational Value chart PDF for an explanation of the basic required amenities for each park based on size.
