Project Description:
The Peninsula Metropolitan Park District (PenMet Parks) is seeking proposals from qualified consultants
to complete an update to PenMet Parks’ Comprehensive Park, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan,
last updated in February 2018.

PenMet Parks is seeking a PROS Plan update to primarily address parks and recreation needs and
opportunities with well-positioned long-range comprehensive goals, policies, strategies, and
implementation measures. The update will establish original levels of services for PenMet, both
existing and proposed, through an open participatory public process.

The updated PROS plan will advance PenMet Parks’ new strategic plan (expected to be adopted in Winter
2022-2023) into a long-range planning horizon, particularly for capital facilities that address PenMet Parks’
needs. The adopted strategic plan will be foundational to this PROS update, given its primary position in
steering PenMet’s policy development and operational decision-making, including annual strategic goals
and objectives. Additionally, the updated PROS plan will incorporate PenMet Parks’ current Recreation
Services Assessment and the findings of the on-going feasibility studies for a dedicated public senior space
and of a dedicated public community aquatic space in the community. The end-result will incorporate
PenMet Parks’ plans into one comprehensive PROS Plan.
