Park and Urban Design

The park and urban design program directs the planning, acquisition, design and construction of new parks, trail areas, and beautification of open space areas throughout the city. The division also coordinates the capital maintenance plan for existing parks, develops project priorities, and bids and supervises major repair projects in existing parks.

The division works closely with Jefferson County Open Space, the Apex Park and Recreation District and other public and private agencies in acquisitions, grants, reimbursement and planning projects.
