What is the Parks and Recreation Master Plan?
Individual meetings with Council and a workshop were held on Wednesday, May 3rd and a Special Council Meeting on Thursday, May 4, 2017. The Master Plan consultants and the Mayor and Council were in attendance to discuss the update to the Master Plan, as well as the conceptual design for Doral Central Park. Feedback from Mayor and Council was extremely positive during the Special Council Meeting on May 4th, and the Mayor and Council approved the Doral Central Park Concept as well as moving forward with the Aquatic Facility, which will be phase 1 of Doral Central Park.
