Park projects are in one of two stages planning or construction. During the planning stages staff, consultants, and the public are engaged to determine the needs, ideas and feasibility of a project. Once funding has been secured for a project the project is in construction stage. Parks and Capital Program staff works closely to manage project bids, construction and delivery of a project.
