Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan
Since 1975, the City of Monroe has engaged in park planning. Every six years, the PROS Plan is updated as a requirement of the State Growth Management Act (GMA) and to be eligible to apply for and receive state and federal grant funding. The PROS Plan is scheduled to be next updated in 2020. The update process will include a careful examination of community recreational needs. Input from local residents, businesses and organizations will be collected through surveys and meetings to generate goals and policy actions for the updated PROS Plan.

Lake Tye Park and Cadman Master Plans
During 2018 the City of Monroe created two long‐range master plans for Lake Tye Park and the Cadman Site. The plans were based on an extensive public involvement process, and would help define the future of these parks. We would like to thank the community for their active participation in this process.
