The City of Waukee has retained Genus
Landscape Architects and PROS Consulting to conduct
a Comprehensive Parks, Recreation + Open Space Plan.
In essence, the goal of the plan is to create a
living document to direct parks and recreation
development for the coming years to best meet the
needs of Waukee.
The six month planning process started in January
2010 and will involve a variety of stakeholders,
including City staff, parks board, city council,
private developers, private recreation providers,
and youth sports leagues. Additionally, three public
open houses will be held to collect feedback from
the residents of Waukee. This plan is particularly
timely due to Waukee’s growing population and
ongoing development opportunities.
Four key areas of focus include:
1. The development of a goal setting and service
delivery philosophy for park services and recreation programs.
2. Identification of recreation program constraints
3. Evaluation of current neighborhood and community
facilities, needs, and opportunities –
for current and future park sites.
4. Evaluation of current and future trails and
connections within Waukee.
