Recreation 2018 Master Plan Update

The Master Plan is a planning tool used to guide improvements for developing recreation programs, parks, and recreation facilities for the next five years. 

Penfield Recreation’s Master Plan is updated every five years. This ensures continuity while expanding the vision and scope of parks and recreation in Penfield to coincide with the town’s present and future capabilities and expectations. Development of this plan is a cooperative effort of the Master Plan Committee, Penfield Town Board, recreation department staff, and residents of Penfield.

As part of this process, the department has created a steering committee of people who represent a broad cross-section of the Penfield community, including community members, community leaders, town officials, and town staff.

The steering committee is responsible for reviewing demographic and facility data, examining future trends that will impact recreation, engaging the community in dialogue regarding future direction, formulating options for addressing program and facility needs, and presenting recommendations to the Town Board regarding the future direction of the Recreation Department.

Recreation Master Plan - 2012
The Town of Penfield Recreation Department created a Recreation Master Plan update Committee in April of 2012. This volunteer committee was comprised of Town staff, Town Board members, and residents who possessed a familiarity of the programs and services the recreation department presently provides. The committee kicked off the update process in May of 2012 with a goal of completing the plan within one year. The focus of the committee was to update the existing Recreation plan without the aide of a paid professional consultant. This process saved the Town a significant expense and the mission to create a workable plan was still obtained. The committee members met monthly and worked diligently to complete the update in a timely and efficient manner.
