Proposed Parks, Culture and Recreation Comp Plan
The City of Marysville is considering adoption of the 2020-2025 Parks, Recreation and Open Space Comprehensive Plan (‘Parks Plan’) as a sub-element of the Marysville Comprehensive Plan. The Parks Plan is a State required document that must be updated every six years. The main priorities of the Parks Plan are to determine the community’s parks and recreation needs; assess if those needs are currently being met; and project future needs and determine a plan for any unmet needs. The Parks, Culture and Recreation Department completed research to assess the community’s needs; analyzed the feedback received from a 19 question community survey completed by 690 individuals; conducted a city-wide inventory of parks, trails and facilities open to the public was completed; and an inventory of recreation and athletics programs available to the public was also compiled. The Parks Plan contains recommendations and strategies for meeting community parks and recreational needs.
