Help shape the future for PenMet Parks.

The Peninsula Metropolitan Parks District (PenMet Parks) is updating its Parks District Comprehensive Plan and wants input from area residents. The Plan update will guide the District’s efforts for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails and programs across the Peninsula. 

A public open house meeting is scheduled for May 24, 2017 to continue the public conversation on the new District Comprehensive Plan.

May 24, 2017; 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Volunteer Vern Pavilion at Sehmel Homestead Park – 10123 78th Ave NW

The meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. with a brief presentation to offer an overview of the project, and community members will be asked to share ideas and comments about recreation programming and park and trail improvements. 

Your input is crucial to voice your thoughts on local park priorities.

PenMet Parks is preparing to update the District’s Comprehensive Park, Recreation, and Open Space Plan.

The process involves public input and we are seeking community members to serve on a variety of Focus Groups. 

Focus Groups will meet in the coming months, either at a public location like PenMet offices, or at a Focus Group Member’s home. 

If you would like to be involved in the 2018 Update, please e-mail and indicate which focus group(s) you’d like to attend using the codes in the table below.

Also, please pass along any names of individuals who you think would be good candidates for inclusion in this process.

This is your park district, and you help make projects like this successful.

Thank you for your involvement.

There will be several additional 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.
