City of Aledo Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Master Plan
Aledo is a suburban/exurban community facing intense development pressure from the expansion of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex. The city worked with IUS to develop a master parks, recreation, and open spaces plan to guide future growth and development while exemplifying its vision of a community of excellence.
The plan incorporates Aledo's Safe Routes to School Plan as the basis for the overall trails plan as well as recommendations from the city's strategic master plan. In addition, students performed a parks facilities inventory and multiple needs assessments and undertook a series of citizen engagement meetings. Preliminary trail system and park concept plans were presented to the public for comment and modified based on feedback.
