The Master Plan process happened in two main phases:
Phase One involved gathering community input related to current or future uses at the park. This included a series public meetings that addressed the overall park along with a series of meetings that sought to gather detailed information related to specific uses within the park.
Phase Two involved a review of proposed conceptual plans. The architects, after collecting and analyzing all of the public input, created several plan options that could meet as many of the expressed needs as possible.
The final, preferred Memorial Park Master Plan was recommended for approval by both the Planning and Parks & Recreation Commission, and was unanimously approved bt the San Anselmo Town Council on February 27, 2018. View the staff report on the Master Plan.
Through the implementation of the master plan, Memorial Park can be restored, preserved and enhanced for the enjoyment of all for generations to come. We hope that you will get involved!
