DRAFT Memorial Park Management Plan
The purpose of the Memorial Park Management Plan is to incorporate the public interest in Memorial Park that will identify short and long term preservation items and improvements. The plan will rely on activity areas and map(s) to communicate Plan concepts. It should be noted that activity areas may overlap and therefore activities of one type may spill into another activity area. However, physical improvements within an activity area should tend to improve the type of activity identified for that area. It is the intent of this plan to incorporate and allow only recreation activities and facilities that are practical. However, due to the limited space and sensitive environmental characteristics, many recreation activities may not be practical or acceptable.
