The City of Fitchburg's Comprehensive Park, Open Space, and Recreation Plan 2010-2015 sets forth goals, objectives, and policies for developing and improving Fitchburg's park and open space system and protecting the community's valued resources. The Plan also provides short-term (next 5 years) and long term recommendations for achieving those goals and objectives.
