Since the City’s incorporation, the vision of the first and subsequent City Councils was to create a greenbelt of undeveloped land surrounding the City. In 2007, property owners from the City voted to support the new Open Space Preservation District (District) recently formed by the City Council. The District represents a significant step forward in the City’s ongoing efforts to acquire, preserve, and protect open space.
The Open Space, Park, and Parkland Program outlines the City’s current plans for funding, acquisition, operations and maintenance of parks, parkland, and open space lands.
