Parks and Recreation to develop implementation plan

The extension of the 1/8 park sales tax in Tuesday’s election means Columbia’s parks will remain intact and continue to be improved.

With the extension of the tax, Columbia Parks and Rec will now develop an implementation plan to be drafted within the next two to three weeks, according to Parks and Recreation director Mike Hood.

The plan will serve as a guide for which projects are to be worked on over the next five years, which is when the tax will either be put to rest or up for re-election again.

Parks and Recreation would like to set up a work session with city council by late November (possibly November 29) or early December, and a finalized implementation for approval plan by early-to-mid-December, according to Hood.

The Missourian will update the story as developments unfold.
