Thank you for joining us throughout this project to share your park needs and vision for the future of parks and open spaces in Everett!
About the Rethink Community Wellbeing initiative
We updated our 2016 Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan! The new 2022 plan is based on an extensive public outreach process that:
Creates a vision for Everett’s parks system to meet the needs of the community
Inventories parks, recreation and trails facilities, urban tree canopy, and identify needs and trends
Establishes goals, objectives, recommendations and actions
Identifies service levels, costs and funding options including a parks impact fee
Recommends implementation strategies including phasing, partnerships and others
The PROS plan allows us to be eligible for state grants through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation (RCO) Office. It also supports other City plans and budgets by helping prioritize projects and programs consistent with the community’s vision, service standards and funding.
