MHS Planning and Design

The City Council selected MHS Planning and Design to develop a new Parks, Recreation, Trails, and Open Space Master Plan. A selection committee featuring representatives of City Council, 4B Economic Board, Parks and Recreation Board, and City Staff reviewed and scored proposals from six firms. The selection committee invited the two firms with the highest overall scores to interview. After interviewing both firms, the selection committee felt MHS Planning and Design would best represent the City of Cleburne through the process. The Tyler-based consulting firm specializes in creating recreational spaces customized to fulfill the unique needs of communities.
