Strategic Facility Improvement Plan

The Parks and Recreation Strategic Facility Improvement Plan provided a comprehensive look at Manhattan's recreation facilities and programs. The plan evaluates existing indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, assesses the community's needs for improved places to play, and proposes strategies to enhance existing (or possibly build new) sport courts, fields and gyms that the entire community will benefit from.

The Steering Committee is a group of residents invested in the future of Manhattan's recreation facilities. They will provide input to guide the planning process.
