  2. Study and evaluate the alternative potential parkland sites, and potential facilities to be developed and alternate uses of parkland dedication funds.
  3. Develop and recommend a comprehensive master plan for park facilities which will guide the city in the acquisition of parkland and the development of park facilities in the city.
  4. Provide input to the city staff, the planning and zoning commission and the city council on potential parkland acquisition and facility projects to be considered for inclusion in the city’s five year capital improvement program.
  5. Perform any other planning and development related functions as required by or requested by the council.
