The City of Monroe has created two long‐range master plans for Lake Tye Park and the Cadman Site. The plans are based on an extensive public involvement process, and will help define the future of these parks.
On February 6, 2018, the Monroe City Council approved the master plans and directed the Mayor and staff to docket the plans into the formal adoption process into the Monroe comprehensive plan for the 2019 cycle.
These plans, if developed in their entirety, could cost upwards of $52 million dollars. During 2019, the various individual elements of these plans will be prioritized into the Monroe Comprehensive Plan to be developed over a twenty (20) year period. Costs for a specific fiscal year would be scaled down accordingly and addressed as part of that year’s budget process. In addition, as the individual elements are prioritized and costs are more readily available, staff will pursue various granting options to assist with the resources needed for implementation. We would like to thank the community for their active participation in this process!
