White Tank Mountain Regional Park Seeks Input on Master Plan Update
(Maricopa County) The Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department is currently updating the 1964 Master Plan for White Tank Mountain Regional Park and is seeking input from the community. The goal of the Park Master Plan is to develop a long-range vision for the park that takes into account park visitors needs while also protecting the resources and natural open space found within the park.
“The department is beginning the initial phase of the planning process and it is important for us to make sure that the community is a part of that process,” stated Maricopa County Supervisor Max Wilson, District 4. White Tank Mountain Regional Park abuts the rapidly growing suburbs of the Town of Buckeye and City of Surprise.
“The March 27th meeting is the first of several public meetings that will be hosted at the park. During this phase of the planning process I’ve asked staff to gather input from park users regarding their recreational needs and preferences. This will help to guide us in the development of the draft master plan,” said R.J. Cardin, Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department Director.
The public comment period for the first phase of the project will remain open for 30-days concluding at the close of business on April 27. To learn more about the public meeting being held at March 27, at 6 p.m. in the White Tank Mountain Regional Park Nature Center or the project, visit www.maricopa.gov/parks/white_tank/ and click on the park project tab.
