Vancouver, Wash. – The Clark County Public Works Parks and Lands Division is updating the Parks and Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan and seeks community input to help direct future priorities for the Clark County parks system. Feedback can be submitted by taking a quick survey. The 20-question survey will help inform Clark County staff as they work to update the PROS plan.
The PROS plan provides direction for the future priorities of the Clark County park system including parks, trails, natural areas, sports fields and other recreation offerings across Clark County. An update of the PROS Plan is required every six years to maintain eligibility for state and federal grants and is a requirement of the state Growth Management Act.
“Our community is growing fast,” said Parks and Lands Division Manager Galina Burley. “This is a great opportunity for community members to offer input and help steer the direction of future park investments.”
Clark County staff will work with consultant Conservation Technix, Inc., to consider staff, Parks Advisory Board and public input while working to complete the comprehensive plan. Once complete, the plan will go to the Clark County Council for approval. It is expected to go before council in 2021.
The survey can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YXQKNK5, and will be available in English, Spanish and Russian. For more information on the PROS plan, please visit: https://www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/comprehensive-parks-plan.
