Saratoga Springs RFP-Recreation Master Plan

The City of Saratoga Springs is seeking a qualified consultant to prepare a comprehensive Recreation Master Plan for the City of Saratoga Springs parks, recreation programs, waterfront, trails, and facilities.

Saratoga Springs’s population is approximately 28,000 residents within a 29 square mile boundary in
Saratoga County.  The City owned parks and facilities total approximately 116 acres, leased parks total approximately 28 acres, and State owned total approximately 2002 acres.  The City owned property includes one recreation center, two ice rinks, one meeting hall, and a waterfront park.  

The goal of the project is to develop a community supported plan that provides guidance for future
development and redevelopment of the City’s parks, recreation programming, waterfront, trails, and
facilities. The Recreation master plan will guide policy development, delivery of City services, prioritize demand and opportunities, and generate a strategic action plan. It will support expansion opportunities through a needs assessment using population growth, public demand, etc.

In addition, the project will seek to incorporate energy efficiency and other sustainability strategies, opportunities to collaborate with other entities, accessibility issues, and capital repairs and replacements.
