Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The proposed Project involves long-term implementation of the proposed Vision Plan, which would fundamentally guide Zoo development and operations over the next 20 years. The Vision Plan would result in comprehensive redesign and redevelopment and operations over the next 20 years. The Vision Pan would result in comprehensive redesign and redevelopment of the Zoo's existing 133-acre site to replace outdated buildings and infrastructure and upgrade and animal care and guest amenities. Vision Plan implementation and improved exhibits, visitor experience and new visitor serving facilities (e.g., event rental spaces), is projected to substantially increase visitation by approximately 1.2 million visitors per year. This projected growth in visitation and expansion of facilities within the Zoo property would have commensurate increases in employment, including Zoo staff and vendors.
