Snohomish County residents and community groups are invited to share their thoughts on what the county’s Parks and Recreation system should look like during the next six years.
To better understand what residents want in their county parks system, Snohomish County is again seeking feedback, and will host a public meeting 6:30-8:30 p.m. May 1 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds’ 4-H Building, located at 14405 179th Ave. SE, Monroe. This is the last in a series of public meetings the county’s Parks and Recreation Department has held to discuss the update.
Parks’ Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan is routinely updated to direct park activities and improvements during the next six-year cycle. The updated plan will include an inventory of the current parks system, an analysis of needs based on public input and will suggest ways to make improvements during the current economic climate. It also will reflect population growth and the recreation interests of Snohomish County residents.
Input now helps the county know exactly what residents hope to see in their county parks system and how they plan to use it. For months, the county has collected comments, and this meeting will provide one final opportunity for the public to comment on the direction of the plan.
Comments on the future of the parks system also can be submitted by mail or email to:
