Snohomish Parks and Recreation Open Space (PROS) Plan
The Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Long Range Plan provides a framework for parks, recreation, and open space within the city, based on an analysis of existing conditions, community demographics, residents’ needs, and regional trends for parks and recreation activities. Utilizing this information, the plan not only addresses current parks, recreation and open space needs, but also the changing needs of the city over time. Given the increasingly rapid evolution of modern society, no long-range plan can be certain of the needs of a population over a 20-year period. Therefore, the plan will be most effective if it is updated on an on-going basis to ensure consistency between the city’s vision and residents’ aims.
The PROS Plan, developed in 2015, provides a framework for parks, recreation, and open space within the city based on an analysis of existing conditions, community demographics, residents’ needs, and regional trends for parks and recreation activities. The City has used the PROS Plan over the last 7 years to inform new park acquisitions, facility improvements, and open space resources.
The City wants to hear from residents, business owners, special interest groups and other interested parties using an online survey. Answers submitted will be made public and presented to the City of Snohomish Parks Board for consideration and possible addition to the updated PROS Long Range Plan.
