Shape Your Parks, Your Future
Coconino County Parks and Recreation is updating its Master Plan and we want to hear from YOU!
What is a master plan?
This master plan will shape the future of Coconino County’s parks, recreation, trails, and open spaces by identifying each community’s needs, goals and priorities.
Why is it important?
Parks, recreation, and open spaces objectives change over time. By identifying existing conditions, needs, and future resources, this master plan will craft a shared vision in Coconino County.
Your voice matters!
- Attend a community meeting (Summer and Fall 2018)
- Complete the survey (Fall 2018)
- Review the draft master plan and recommendations (Winter 2018-19 and Spring 2019)

2009 Organizational Master Plan
Coconino County Parks and Recreation's 2009 Organizational Master Plan established goals, policies, and strategies to re-position the department to provide a wider range of outdoor programs and services to a wider range of citizens. Goals addressed through 2019 relate to: facility management, repair, and replacement; financial and budgetary management; strategic growth; and new programs and facilities.
The public's input shaped the Master Plan in three fundamental directions. In the public's view, the County should:
- Maintain and improve existing facilities, including capital repair and replacement, and upgrades to expand capacity or generate additional revenues for parks,
- Focus on large parks devoted to natural areas, open spaces, corridor trails, passive recreation, nature education/adventure camps, and special events; and
- Develop additional county parks in local communities that agree to participate in fund raising, operation, and facility maintenance.
