Park Master Plans Update

The City of Monroe is creating two long-range master plans for Lake Tye Park and the Cadman Site, which is adjacent to Skykomish River Park. Both plans will chart improvements, guide funding strategies, and help define the future of these parks.

To involve the public in shaping the future of these parks, the City of Monroe hosted two pop-up planning studios and two open houses on September 15th and 16th at the Boys and Girls Club and at Lake Tye Park. The pop-up studios gathered input from park users and local residents during the daytime, and the open houses reviewed the work produced during the pop-up studios in the evening.  Both the pop-up studios and the open houses were well attended by the public.

In addition to the pop-up studios and open houses, interested stakeholders had the option to take an online survey to answer questions and provide comments about their vision for the two parks. The online survey has been very popular and the number of responses has exceeded everyone’s expectations. The survey remains open until September 24th at the following link

Our contracted consultant, HBB Landscape Architects of Seattle, are condensing the data and ideas that the community brought forth and will present the preliminary ideas to both the Monroe City Council and Park Board in a joint meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 26.  Next steps will include refining the concepts more review and public input, with City Council adoption of the master plans to occur in January 2018.
