Larson Park: Master Plan
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project consists of a Master Plan update proposing renovations and improvements to an existing 6-acre public park site. Rather than implementing individual upgrades to specific aspects of the park, Regional Parks initiated a process to engage the community and prepare a Master Plan to guide the overall vision for the future of the park. After gathering initial community feedback, the community participants expressed a consensus to generally retain the existing uses, in the same layout. Thus the proposed Master Plan involves a renovation project with goals of addressing the deferred maintenance of the aging infrastructure; improving the play value of the recreational features; enhancing safety and community connections; and protecting the natural resources of this cherished neighborhood park.
