The city unveiled key vision elements of their Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan at an open house. 

The city has been gathering feedback from community members over the past year relating to the plan, and on Wednesday night they shared what they have come up with so far.

Community members came out to get an up close look at the plan. It outlines where the recreational areas are in town. It also highlights where more dog parks, trails, upgraded playground equipment, and different water accesses could potentially be implemented.

The city's Master Park Plan, Municipal Forest Master Plan, and Billings Park Master Plan were last revised in 2010. That's why Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Director Linda Cadotte says changes are being considered.

"Outdoor recreation is continuing to evolve and change, and sports that weren't there or recreational opportunities that weren't there 5 or 10 years ago, Pickleball, you just go down the list, Disc Golf of things that are becoming more and more popular that perhaps maybe weren't folded into the plan," said Cadotte.

Cadotte says the community feedback has been positive, and that people are excited to see potential changes. 

The feedback and thoughts from Wednesday's open house will be combined into a final plan. That will then be sent back to the Parks & Recreation Commission for their approval on it, and then put before the city council. 

If approved by the council, Cadotte says the plan would be implemented within the next three months.
