Virtual Community Meeting – Saturday October 16, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:00pm  

The City of Edmonds is continuing the process of updating the 6-year Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) plan. We believe that everyone in the community plays an important role in the planning process, so we spent the summer gathering input from park goers, program participants, and Edmonds’ residents. We will share some of the preliminary results and ask for additional community input to establish priorities in Edmonds parks and recreation programs. 

Please join us on Saturday, October 16 from 1:00 – 2:00pm for a virtual community meeting to talk about what’s next for the Edmonds parks system and recreation programs.

Background on the Planning for the Future of Edmonds Parks & Recreation Services
The city has started to update its Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan, which was previously adopted in 2016. The new citywide Plan will establish a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, recreation programs, waterfront and natural areas for the Edmonds community. 

As demand for recreation services and parks grows and changes, the City needs to plan for the future of its parks, programs and open spaces. Every six years, the City develops an updated PROS Plan as the city’s blueprint for park improvements and recreation programming, and it will keep the city eligible for state and federal grants.  

Citizen input is crucial to make sure recreational goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and interests. There will be several, COVID-sensitive opportunities for the community to participate, including community surveys, virtual public meetings and in-person activities, such as displays at the Farmers Market and other community events. This process will give us an excellent opportunity to identify ways to better serve Edmonds’ recreational needs over the coming 6 to 10 years. 

The review and adoption of the updated, draft PROS Plan is anticipated for the early 2022.
