The Jackaline Baldwin Dunlap Foundation Board recommended approval of ISG to complete the Master Plan, and will fund 50% of the project cost.  The City’s balance of $18,755 will be funded with cell tower lease revenue allocated in the Parks Improvement Special Revenue Fund.  The master plan would provide a strategic plan for the park and arboretum, and give direction to City staff and the Dunlap Foundation for the development, enhancement and maintenance of the park for the next 10+ years.  The document would be a working, dynamic tool that could be amended with variations of projects as funding opportunities allow.  It is anticipated that design work for this project would begin immediately and would be completed by December 31, 2017.
