Meals Hill Master Plan
The City of Valdez Parks, Recreation & Cultural Service Department is beginning the process for the Meals Hill Master Plan. This master planning process will help guide development of the Meals Hill property in the years to come, and incorporate community feedback and vision about what is important to those in Valdez.
What is Meals Hill?
Meals Hill is 184-acres of public land located near the Valdez Ferry Terminal that is permanently protected by a conservation easement. The Meals Hill property is a significant landmark with environmentally diverse habitat, and it has the potential to be a recreational destination for the City of Valdez. To learn more about the project, property, and its history, please visit the Meals Hill Master Plan website.
Thank you for your input! A stakeholder survey was conducted in fall 2020 and 428 surveys were returned providing valuable feedback and input about the future of Meals Hill.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan
Started in 2019, the City of Valdez Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Department underwent a formal master planning process for its Parks & Recreation Division to develop a strategic 10-year master plan with the help and expertise of GreenPlay, LLC. The master planning process was a collaborative effort which consisted of the following tasks:
- Community/Stakeholder Engagement
- Statistically-Valid Stakeholder Survey
- Comprehensive Facility Inventory and Level of Service Analysis
- Assessment and Analysis of Existing Conditions
- Demographics, Trends, and Operational, Financial and Program Analysis
- Recommendations: Goals, Objectives and Action Plan
The Parks & Recreation Master Plan was completed and formally adopted by the City of Valdez City Council in July 2020.
