The Community Services Department recently launched two major planning processes that will involve legacy opportunities for the community. The first is working with our community to develop an Arts and Culture Master Plan that will create an identity and understanding of the arts and identify how we can work collaboratively to foster and enhance arts, culture and creativity. The second is a Parks, River Access, and Connectivity Master Plan that will result in a master plan for a new 36-acre park in the Montage resort development, a redevelopment plan for improvements to Badger Park, ways to create and enhance access to the Russian River for the community, and ways to provide better connectivity to parks, open spaces, recreational facilities, schools, the Russian River, and other points of interest throughout the city. Both planning processes are anticipated to take approximately one year. More information on how to get involved is available on the City's web site at https://www.ci.healdsburg.ca.us/589/Planning-Projects.
