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.
