We're updating our 2016 Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan! Our new 2022 plan will be based on an extensive public outreach process and will:
Create a vision for Everett’s parks system to meet the needs of the community
Inventory parks, recreation and trails facilities, urban tree canopy, and identify needs and trends
Establish goals, objectives, recommendations and actions
Identify service levels, costs and funding options including a parks impact fee
Recommend implementation strategies including phasing, partnerships and others
The PROS plan allows us to be eligible for state grants through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation (RCO) Office. It will also support other City plans and budgets by helping prioritize projects and programs consistent with the community’s vision, service standards and funding.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our vision survey!
