Final Master Plan
The final master plan was presented to the community and the park’s advisory committee on Monday, March 12, 2018. Changes were made to the plan based on comments from the advisory committee and the community, including the addition of a perimeter trail and a revision to the open space.

Before a final master plan can be prepared, we seek out feedback from the community on several alternative concepts. These plans are sketches that represent programmatic elements and how they relate to each other on the site. We explore how visitors use and access the park. On Thursday, January 11, 2018, we presented four alternative concepts to the community at the first public open house.
These four alternative concepts are presented below and we welcome your feedback (click on each image to see a full-size PDF). We will take your feedback, as well as feedback from RCC Staff and stakeholders, and develop a singular concept plan for Belews Park. That plan will be presented at the February 8th open house at RCC.
We collected feedback on the concept alternatives from the community at the January 11th open house as well as through an online survey. The survey closed on January 29, 2018. Presented below are the results of the survey (click the image to see it full size). The information and preferences collected will help define the final draft master plan to be presented on February 8, 2018.
As concepts are developed and the master plan finalized, the drawings will be posted on this page. Check back often for updates.
