Master Plans

Master plans guide the protection of unique natural, historical and cultural features and are used to develop facilities and provide recommendations for future land acquisition from willing sellers. Master plans follow an intensive consensus-building public participation process and Park Commission review before being adopted by the County Board.

Master plans may provide general long-term vegetation cover goals. Some properties may have specific Management Plans that provide additional information including vegetation management.
