Parks, Recreation & Open Space plan input sought

PIERCE COUNTY — You are invited to learn about updates to the Pierce County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan through an online open house.

The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan is updated about every six years. The plan provides the long-term plan for parks, trails, open space, and recreation programs offered by Pierce County. The plan includes an inventory of the existing Pierce County Parks system, an assessment of the demand and need for park facilities throughout unincorporated Pierce County, a 2020-2030 capital facilities action plan, and more.

The Parks Department has been gathering community input for the plan update to better understand the community’s priorities since the last plan was adopted in 2014.

A public review draft of the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan is available through an online open house at through Nov. 4, 2019. The online open house summarizes the plan and provides an opportunity for feedback.

Following the online open house, public input will be compiled to produce an adoption draft of the plan, which will then be considered by the Parks Citizens Advisory Board and Planning Commission in November. These groups will make recommendations to the County Council. The County Council will consider adoption of the Plan in early 2020.
