This Version II Summary Guide is intended to provide an affordable step-by-step outline manual for students or individual professionals wanting to learn how to prepare a master plan for smaller park and recreation agencies.

The authors are professional parks and recreation planners who have conducted more than 450 successful community plans around the United States.

This guide explains tasks can be completed by agencies and provides an overview of other tasks, such as a statistically valid survey, which may be most effectively and efficiently completed as contracted services, and why they are important.

In addition, it provides an overview of the potential decision to contract with an independent third party, such as a professional park, recreation, and open space management consulting firm, which can provide unbiased credibility to the planning process.

Suggestions for decision-making, community and stakeholder engagement, innovative inventory and programming analysis, financial review, technological tools, and an appropriate approval process are included.

A full Version I Guide is also available separately, which includes 18 valuable appendix resources, such as questionnaires, matrices, invitation and inventory templates, and other sample documents to help fully implement a comprehensive planning process.
