2019 Parks Master Plan Progress
Update on the Development of Parks Master Plan
In June 2019, the Seguin City Council unanimously approved the selection of Stantec Consulting Services, Inc. to develop a Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Spaces Master Plan Update for the City of Seguin. The development of the 10-year Master Plan is intended to help meet the needs of current and future residents by positioning Seguin to build on the community’s parks and recreation assets, and identify new opportunities.
Stantec staff will work closely with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, Seguin residents, the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council during the plan development. The Master Plan process, which will take 6-9 months, includes meetings with stakeholder groups, interactive public workshops, surveys, online engagement tools, and public presentations.
The result will be a Parks Master Plan that establishes a clear direction to guide city staff, advisory committees, and elected officials in their efforts to enhance the city's parks and recreation services and facilities.
Parks and Recreation Director Jack Jones says, “When complete, the plan will provide a vision to guide the future growth, development, operations, and programs of the City’s parks and facilities, recreation and event programs, open spaces, and trail system. Public input is crucial in helping us create a comprehensive parks plan that includes the most desired services for our citizens and community.”
