The 2024 PROS Plan Update is now underway! Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities in spring and summer 2023 to share your input and help shape the future of our parks over the next six years.
WHAT IS THE PROS PLAN?
The Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan is a part of the City’s broader Comprehensive Plan and is consistent with the guidelines established by the Growth Management Act (GMA). The PROS Plan must be updated every six years for Sammamish to retain eligibility for state grants through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO), which administers a variety of outdoor recreation and conservation grant programs. Sammamish's current PROS Plan was adopted in 2018 and needs to be updated in 2024 for the City to remain eligible for RCO funding opportunities. In addition to ensuring eligibility for state grants, the PRO Plan serves as a guiding document for Parks Staff by providing specific goals, objectives, and recommendations for developing, conserving, and maintaining high-quality parks, trails, facilities, and programs across the City. The Plan considers the park and recreation needs of residents city-wide through robust community engagement. It also provides updated inventories, demographic conditions, needs analysis, management considerations, and parks capital improvement plan.
A total of $172,100 is allocated in the 2023-2024 Parks budget for the PROS Plan and is inclusive of all planning costs.
