STUDY SESSION

 

9.         PARKS, RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE (PROS) PLAN SCOPE OF WORK

 

Planning and Development Services Director Swindale presented the proposed scope of work needed to update the City’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan.  The City is required by State law to maintain a PROS Plan for the City to be eligible for state and federal grants and loans for parks recreation and open space facilities and services. The PROS Plan needs to be updated every six years to continue eligibility for grant funding. The next update to the City’s PROS Plan must be approved by the Recreation and Conservation Board by February 2020.

 

The Council discussed the scope of the public outreach and how it can be integrated with the Image 2045 campaign; the timeline, resources and budget implication of the PROS Plan update; and whether or not to include Chambers Bay, as well as public entities/facilities who provide recreation, as part of the park asset inventory.  A request was made for staff to provide information on the amount of park impact fees that will be generated by the Chambers Bay Resort Ground Lease Agreement; as well as information on the ramification of the Chambers Bay Resort development.  Additional study on this issue will be scheduled at a future Council meeting.
