Appendix A Glossary
The open space and conservation element seeks to protect and preserve open space, productive agricultural areas, and environmental resources. This element also establishes goals for the maintenance and provision of new and existing parks.
The primary issue for the open space and conservation element is providing sufficient park space and recreation facilities to serve existing residents and planned growth. The element also seeks to celebrate and memorialize the community’s natural, agricultural, and cultural roots. Additionally, the element provides policies to protect water supply and quality.
The open space and conservation element and its associated figure set forth the goals, policies, and general parameters for the fiscally sound and sustainable development and protection of our open space resource system. These documents are conceptual in nature and serve as guidance. The specifics of the city’s park system such as the definition of the park classification system, general development criteria for each classification, and inventory of sites will be determined under the comprehensive City of Clovis Parks Master Plan. Guidance is also provided by the Urban Forest Management Plan.
Figure OS-1 is reflective of the current draft City of Clovis Parks Master Plan. Once approved, this Plan will be updated periodically and serve as the guiding document for the implementation of the city’s open space facilities.
