Comprehensive Master Plan

JPRD Comprehensive Master Plan


The Jamestown Parks & Recreation District has begun its Comprehensive Parks Master Plan, a transformative project aimed at shaping the future of our community parks system. This initiative is an exciting opportunity for every resident of Jamestown, North Dakota, to play a vital role in the development of our parks and recreational spaces.


What exactly is a Comprehensive Parks Master Plan, and why does it matter to you?


A Comprehensive Parks Master Plan acts as a roadmap that identifies the needs and values of our community. Think of it as a compass guiding us to create parks and recreational spaces that align perfectly with what you, the community members of Jamestown, envision. It’s not just a plan; it’s a shared vision that reflects the heart and soul of our community. This tool guides us in figuring out where to put our efforts and how to use our resources wisely.


Why is this plan important to you, our fellow citizens?


Community Voices Matter: Your thoughts and ideas are the heart of this plan. By participating, you ensure that the parks and recreational spaces reflect the desires and needs of the entire community.

A Better Tomorrow: This plan isn’t just about today; it’s about creating a legacy for future generations. Your input will help shape a Jamestown that boasts top-notch parks and recreation for years to come.

How You Can Be Involved


We Value Your Opinion! At JPRD, we believe your voice matters and we want to hear from you about ideas you may have for our Master Plan. We are offering two ways you can tell us your thoughts and opinions.  Fill out the Public Comment Form below or participate in the Community Wide Survey.


The goal of the community-wide survey is to assist in the development of JPRD’s Comprehensive Master Plan. This initiative aims to gather invaluable input from residents to help determine the community’s needs and priorities, ultimately shaping the future of Jamestown’s park system.


The survey opens on March 11, 2024, and will remain open for a month, concluding at 11:45pm on April 11, 2024. Residents of Jamestown are encouraged to participate and have their voices heard in this critical planning process.


The community-wide survey seeks to gather insights on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to desired amenities and facilities within the parks, community vision for their park system, maintenance and upkeep preferences, accessibility and inclusivity considerations, and programming and events suggestions.


Community input obtained through this survey will play a pivotal role in guiding the Jamestown Parks & Recreation District in developing strategies and initiatives to enhance the park system for the benefit of all residents.

Town Hall Meeting


Jamestown Parks and Recreation hosted a hosted a Town Hall Meeting on February 22, 2024 served as a platform to discuss and present the progress made in the development of their comprehensive master plan. The event informed the public about the project’s steps taken to date through a presentation, providing insights into analysis of the current park system. Following the brief presentation there was a breakout session that actively engaged participants, collected valuable information on specific park needs, preferred uses, vision for their park system, and explored opportunities for improvement as part of the ongoing planning process.  View a recording of the prevention below.
