In 2022, the City of Ripon contracted with MSA Professional Services to complete a Parks Master Plan.

What is a master plan?

• a framework for future maintenance, updates, and potential redevelopment

• not a construction plan

• a narrative, cost estimate, graphics, and color visuals

The master planning process includes public input sessions. This includes a public survey (results attached), a stakeholder meeting (summary attached), and additional public input sessions to be scheduled.

The Parks and Rec Committee has taken the lead on this master planning effort with city staff. Meeting presentation from MSA from September is attached.

Additionally, the Parks Master Plan has identified the creation of a Parks and Recreation Director position for the city. Information regarding this position is attached. The city is planning on including this position in the 2023 budget. 

Public Open House scheduled for October 26th, 2023 from 6:00-7:30PM at City Hall. Please join us to learn about the master plan and provide feedback on our parks!
