Project Description: Parks and Recreation joins a multi-stakeholder partnership focused on creating an innovative open space/green infrastructure plan for the Columbia/Boone County area. Partners include MDC, Greenbelt Land Trust, and Boone County. Estimated total cost of plan is $100,000 with P&R providing up to a maximum of $40,000 for the development of the plan.
An implementation phase is planned for FY15, with P&R providing $50,000 (funded in FY2014) toward the $150,000 implementation budget. The agreement allows for the renewal of the agreement for another year, if desired by the parties involved.

Project Notes: The committee chose "Our Natural Legacy - A Plan for Columbia and Boone County" for the plan name. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MO DNR) executed an agreement with the City of Columbia to pay their portion ($10,000) of the Phase I plan to the City, and in turn the City would make the payment to the vendor.
Project Status: Phase I of the "Our Natural Legacy" plan has been completed. The consultant presented the plan to the City Council at the September 15, 2014 work session (pre-Council meeting). The contract for the implementation phase has been approved by Council and the contractor is currently working on an aquisition matrix to identify properties.
