How can Fife Parks & Recreation meet your family’s recreation needs? You can help us forge a plan for the next 20 years!
The city has started an update of its Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan previously adopted in 2008. The PROS Plan will guide the City’s efforts and establish a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, open spaces and recreational opportunities throughout Fife. The Plan will include a vision for the City’s park and recreation system, goals and objectives, and implementation strategies for parks, recreation, open spaces and trails.
Citizen input is absolutely crucial to make sure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires. There will be several opportunities for residents to participate, including an online survey, public meetings and community stakeholder discussions. This process gives us an excellent opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the next 6 to 10 years.
Fife has experienced significant growth since the 2008 adoption of the last PROS plan, and it needs to be revised to address community demands and opportunities for local recreation experiences. View the current City of Fife Parks & Recreation Open Space Plan (2014).
Final review and adoption of the PROS Plan update was placed in February of 2014.
Community Open House Summary
Community members were invited to an open house in August of 2013 at Dacca Park to offer direct comments and feedback about the future of parks, trails and recreation services. The project team prepared informational displays covering four major themes for parks and recreation. These display stations included Indoor Recreation, Parks & Recreation Priorities, Trails, and Parks & Natural Areas. Attendees were encouraged to complete the online community survey, which is accessible from the link at the top of this page.
