7.1.A Purpose of the OS-N Neighborhood Open Space District

The purpose of the OS-N Neighborhood Open Space District is to provide a classification for parks located within neighborhoods that serve as recreation areas for residents in the local area. Neighborhood parks are smaller in scale than regional parks and more limited in the types of recreational uses allowed. The OS-N District is also intended to provide for the preservation of natural environmental features and wildlife habitats at certain locations surrounded by developed neighborhoods, and to provide protection for the City’s historic cemeteries.
