Strategic Planning


The Urbana Park District has a strong history of planning for the future. We will move forward with a new Strategic Plan this year - the first plan in ten years.

You belong at Urbana Parks and we also believe you belong in our strategic planning process. You will find information below to update you about our strategic plan and, most importantly, a questionnaire where you can share your thoughts and ideas for the future of the Urbana Park District by commenting on current projects as well as sharing general feedback for how we can better serve you.

Please take a moment of your time to fill out our online questionnaire: This process can only be successful through your input!

Four Pillars of the Strategic Planning Initiative

  • Improvement of water and sediment quality
  • Shoreline enhancement and habitat restoration
  • Public recreation

Reaching Underrepresented Residents

KRT Trailhead at Weaver Park
