How can the Peninsula Metropolitan Park District meet your recreational needs?
We want to hear from you!
The Peninsula Metropolitan Park District (PenMet Parks) has started to update its Comprehensive Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan, previously adopted in 2012. The new Plan will establish a path forward for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails and recreation services throughout District.
The new Plan will help shape the delivery of parks and recreation services and is intended to be strategic in focus to help the District respond to three important questions:
- What are our strengths?
- Where should we focus our efforts?
- How should we serve our local community?
Public input is crucial to make sure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires.
There will be several opportunities for you to participate, including a survey, public meetings, stakeholder discussions and an online community forum. This process gives us an excellent opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the next six to ten years.
Final review and adoption of the new Plan tentatively is scheduled for February 2018.
Check back soon for more information about public meetings and other outreach.
