RHAA is working closely with the City of Santa Cruz to develop a Park and Recreation Plan that will guide decisions for the next fifteen years. The Master Plan will help focus the City’s goals of providing a high-quality, well-balanced park, recreation and open space system that will continue to serve the needs of its citizens well into the future, while continuing to wisely manage public finances and resources. One challenge is the need to provide facilities for tourists as well as residents. The plan will be framed by the input received during the public outreach. Outreach has included both qualitative input in the form of interviews, two public workshop, kiosk at community events, an on-line survey as well as a quantitative, statistically valid telephone survey.
