 On April 16, 2013 the Olmsted County Parks Commission completed a two-year effort in developing a document entitled:  Olmsted County Parks Commission Planning Guidelines and Values.  It was approved by the Olmsted County Board of Commissioner's shortly after.  This document was the cornerstone of the Park Division's effort to move forward with the Master Planning and Operational Practices.  Further, the body of work sets a directional course for the future of our valued public lands.  It is the intention of the authoring body that these "guidelines" should be reviewed and modified, when required, by future Park Commissions.  It is not intended to be a static document.
