The City of Anderson last prepared a master plan for the Anderson River Park in 1983, and now wishes to update that plan to reflect current community needs and recreation trends. Anderson River Park is jointly owned by the City of Anderson and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). While the Anderson River Park Master Plan Update will examine and document conditions throughout the entire park area, no changes or new facilities are anticipated on the CDFW owned portion. The ARP Master Plan Update will provide clear direction that can be used to guide future development and use of the park.
The Master Plan Update also includes an environmental site analysis of the park and an evaluation of opportunities and constraints that reflects community needs and interests. It will also provide specific recommendations, associated costs, and an implementation strategy. Additional elements associated with the Master Plan Update include development of a funding plan to help implement the recommendations, and keeping the community and decision makers informed about the project.
