Urban Design & Planning: Parks & Open Space Master Planning

Sustainable Places®, Inc.

Challenges for the Town of Normal Parks and Open Space Master Plan included preservation and enhancement of existing park and open space resources.

The project process included extensive public input through written surveys and stakeholder meetings. Public input revealed the importance of bicycle paths in the community as open space assets and arterials for people to get around town. The survey information, combined with an analysis of existing physical conditions, led to a master plan strategy for upgrading existing parks, enhancing park programs, and acquisition of additional open space.
