We want to hear from you!  

The City of Salinas has started to prepare a citywide Master Plan for Parks, Recreation Centers and Library Services!

This Plan is a part of Visión Salinas, a unified coordination effort between various planning initiatives, with the goal of a citizen driven focus for the future of Salinas. The Plan is working to combine and strengthen planning efforts such as the Alisal Vibrancy Plan, the Chinatown Revitalization Plan and the Parks, Rec, & Libraries Master Plan. The new Master Plan will guide the City's efforts and establish a path forward for continuing to provide high quality, community-driven parks, recreation facilities and programs and library services serving the Salinas community. The Plan will include a vision for the park, recreation and library system, goals and objectives, a capital investment program, and implementation strategies for parks, programs and services.

The Master Plan will shape the delivery of City-provided parks, recreation and library services in a manner that is consistent with other city planning goals and is intended to be strategic in focus to help the City respond to three important questions:

  • What are our strengths?

  • Where should we focus our efforts?

  • How should we serve our local community?

Public input is crucial to make sure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires.

This project webpage will provide updates on the planning process, public meeting schedule, surveys, and more. For more information, call 831-758-7222.

Check back soon for more information about other public meetings and project information.

Final review and adoption of the Plan tentatively is scheduled for Fall 2017.
