The City contracted with a consultant to work with staff and the community to prepare a comprehensive master plan for the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park (CHWP). The master plan updated the former management plan for the City-owned hillside wilderness area and incorporate the various documents and agreements that guide the operation and maintenance of the almost 2,000-acre preserve. The goal was to create a unified vision for the CHWP that balances environmental conservation with passive trail use.

The City released a draft version of the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park Master Plan for public review in January of 2016. The Draft Plan was taken to the Community and Human Services Commission and Traffic and Transportation Commission for review and recommendations. Based on Commissioner and public feedback, the Master Plan and Implementation Plan were revised and the Final Draft Master Plan and Implementation Plan was approved by the City Council at their meeting on May 10, 2016.

The Final CHWP Master Plan has two components: the Master Plan and an Implementation Plan. The Master Plan  summarizes the existing conditions of the Wilderness Park, details the current usage of the park, and outlines a plan for balancing the preservation of the area with recreational use. The Implementation Plan is an action plan for the operation and management of the park. The Implementation Plan also contains recommendations for management of the parking lots and surrounding streets.
