We heard from you!

The city updated its Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan previously adopted in 2003 as part of the comprehensive plan. The new PROS Plan establishes a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreation services throughout Covington.

Citizen input is absolutely crucial to make sure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires. There were several opportunities to participate, including a telephone survey, public meetings and community stakeholder discussions. This process gave us an excellent opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the coming six to 10 years.

Final review and adoption of the plan occured in May 2010.
