At the beginning of the year, the City kicked off a process to update the 2008 Parkville Parks Plan. The Plan was created to provide a road map for the utilization, development and expansion of Parkville’s current and future park system. Since the adoption of the 2008 Parkville Parks Plan, many of the original objectives have been accomplished; notably, the parks and open space along the Missouri River corridor more than doubled with the opening of Platte Landing Park in the summer of 2014 which includes a new boat ramp, the county’s first off-leash dog park and a recreational trail.
The purpose of this project is to update the existing 2008 Parkville Parks Plan with specific emphasis on the riverfront parks corridor, notably the intersection of Platte Landing Park and the western portion of English Landing Park. The primary goal will be to re-examine community priorities for the riverfront parks and document a long-term strategy for park development that has mutual support from the City and County.
The City budgeted $42,000 in the 2016 Capital Improvement Program for this project. Staff requested financial support from Platte County to assist with the components of the project related to Platte Landing Park. In early 2016, Platte County agreed to budget $10,000 to support the Parkville Parks Master Plan update.
