A Long-Term Plan for Parks, Recreation Facilities, and Services

The Greenprint is a long-term strategic plan that guides the future expansion of San José's parks, recreation facilities and community services. The City is undertaking a major update of its existing Greenprint. The process will involve extensive public engagement and is expected to take approximately 12-18 months. 

On February 7, 2017, City Council received a status report on the Greenprint update. 
For more background, read the June 1, 2016 Parks and Recreation Commission
memo and presentation.

Feedback from this survey will help shape the future of San José's parks, recreation facilities, and neighborhood services.

Spread the word! Share the survey with family and friends. There will also be opportunities to provide input at upcoming local events and workshops.
