P&R Master Plan

2007 Parks and Recreation Master Plan

The Town of Victor developed and adopted its initial Parks and Recreation Master Plan in (2002).  The plan included the design and construction of the 1st phase of Dryer Road Park and acknowledged to importance of recreation as a quality of life element in Victor.  This original plan was updated in (2007) and involved the concept plans for Victor Municipal Park and Paparone Park. Additional projects identified in that (2007) update, which have since been realized include the Auburn Trail Extension project, the lodges at Victor Municipal Park and MaryFrances Bluebird Haven and the importance of a public facility dedicated to recreation and housing the Department of Parks and Recreation.

The 2007 Parks and Recreation Master Plan (PDF) is 101 pages in length.

Time for an Update...

With the Town continuing to see population and business growth within the community, the Town Board and the Parks and Recreation Citizens’ Advisory Committee have decided to provide another update to the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.  In the winter of (2017), the Town hired the consultant team of Bayer Landscape Architecture of Honeoye Falls, New York to work with the community to provide a fresh look at parks and recreation services in the Town and Village of Victor.

The major elements of the project include an inventory and analysis of the existing Victor parks and recreation system, facilities and programs.  This will include working with the Parks and Recreation Citizens’ Advisory Committee and Department staff to identify key issues and topics for public engagement.  A significant public engagement and community outreach process including an informal Open House meeting, gatherings with stakeholder groups, visibility at community-wide special events and the development and implementation of a survey.

Once the research findings, community input and survey results are gathered, project goals and program elements will be established and recommendations will be made to the Town. The final updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan will documents these elements as well as budget forecasting and project prioritization. We anticipate that the project will begin in the Spring and Summer of (2018). More to come!
