Time: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The purpose of the Master Plan is to:

  • Develop a mission and vision for the Arboretum
  • Review and update the plant collection inventory
  • Propose expansion areas for the arboretum collection in the context of the Arboretum Master Plan
  • Review Accessibility and constraints
  • Create current and future plant collection areas, with botanical themes and interpretive opportunities
  • Propose seasonal visitor experiences
  • Propose educational program opportunities
  • Create educational and interpretive signage (design)
  • Identify potential revenue generation opportunities
  • Update the existing Conceptual Design, prepare Cost Estimates, and Sequencing Requirements for implementing any recommended improvements to the Arboretum Master Plan

The PIC will be an informal drop-in session where participants can review the information presented, ask questions of City staff and provide feedback to help guide the Master Plan.
