City of Dinuba

How can Dinuba’s parks and programs meet your family's recreation needs?

We want to hear from you! 

The city has begun to prepare a citywide Parks & Recreation Master Plan to establish a path forward for providing high-quality, community-driven parks and recreation offerings across Dinuba.

Resident input is crucial to make sure recreational goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires. There will be several opportunities for you to participate, including a community survey and public events. This process will give us an opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the coming 10 years.

An updated citywide master plan will also position Dinuba for future grant opportunities and pursue Prop 68 funding.

The review and adoption of the Parks & Recreation Master Plan is anticipated for late summer 2020. 

What makes a great community? This city is only as good as you make it. Have you ever wanted to get involved in the community or want to be a part of a club and have no idea how? We have put together a list of great ways to get involved.

The Tulare Economic Development Corporation contracted with Foote Consulting Group (FCG) to review and certify a number of industrial sites in the county, including this site. Certification is a nationally recognized process that assures companies and site selection consultants that an industrial property is ready for development.

The FCG certification process looks at 39 site variables in a detailed application process. We certify the site at a Gold, Silver or Bronze level depending on how the variables are met. This certification tells the development world that the site is “ready to go”!

Site 1

Site 2

Certification Process

Deane Foote visited Dinuba on 9/29/15 and met with several community/regional officials and toured the site. We discussed how to use the certification in promoting and marketing the site and getting this information in the hands of site selection consultants and perspective companies. Deane will be sharing examples of good site brochures.

Important Site Variables

FCG recognizes the following as important for development of Site 1 & 2:

  • All 39 key factors are completed and are in place
  • City-owned and ready for sale at a good price
  • An efficient permitting process
  • Industrial park setting with all utilities at the site
  • Flat site with good access to roads and highways
  • No environmental issues.
