The Board of Park Commissioners will consider adopting the updated Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan in October. The purpose of the PROS Plan is to identify community priorities for parks, recreation, and open space. It is updated periodically, but at least every six years. You can learn more about the PROS Plan and offer your input at the next Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, October 3 or October 17 at 6 PM at the Arletta Schoolhouse in Hales Pass Park, 3607 Ray Nash Drive NW, Gig Harbor.
The 2023 PROS Plan was developed through open forums and survey research that garnered feedback from an array of stakeholders. These participants included residents, park and recreation partners, and community partners across all levels of the organization. The goals and objectives of the plan are based on the results of this research, to reflect the community’s priorities; they also help ensure the sustainable provision of parks, trails, and recreation for the next six years.
You can read more about the 2023 Draft PROS Plan on the PenMet Parks website, including a draft copy of the updated PROS Plan and a copy of the presentation that was presented at the September 26 Board of Commissioners Study Session.
