The Parks and Recreation Strategic Plan, adopted by the Town Council in January 2020, is the Town’s first-ever simultaneous study of the entire parks system and recreational facilities, and provides a vision to guide the future development, operations, and programs of the Town’s parks, recreation, open space, and trail system.
A key component of the Strategic Plan was capturing as much public input as possible to guide the Town’s long-term vision. Thanks to the more than 1,600 participants who casted nearly 40,000 votes and provided 2,400 comments on the Strategic Parks Plan survey. In addition, two in-person meetings were held and well attended by several hundred residents and 20 stakeholder groups.
At the June 15, 2021 Town Council meeting, the Council voted to authorize Mayor Brindle to sign a Letter of Intent ("LOI") to explore a shared service agreement with the Westfield Board of Education for a proposed multipurpose fields project at Edison Intermediate School. The proposal consists of approximately 400,00 square feet of new turf, lighted multi-use fields. Find out more about the proposal and how to provide feedback on the Edison Fields Project page.
