PROS Plan Banner 2020

On February 22, 2022, the Monroe City Council adopted the 2022 Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan. The PROS Plan is the City’s  long-range plan for our community’s park, recreation, and open space system.

The public played a major role in the development of the PROS Plan by providing input on what types of parks, facilities, and recreation activities are needed in our community.CircleMap

Specifically, City staff received substantial input from the public on: 

  • Identifying ways that parks, facilities, trails, and programs can enhance community livability and meet the needs of new growth.
  • Ways to plan for ongoing improvements in all City parks and open spaces, including Lake Tye Park and the Cadman site.
  • How to prioritize and support events and activities offered in our parks.
  • Ways to protect our natural resources and connect our city via our trail network.
  • How to maximize the City’s investment in parks to increase our City’s economic prosperity.

About the Master Plan

The 2022 PROS Plan guides the City’s future investment in parks, facilities, trails, programs, and events—so that Monroe can be the community that residents want to see. Based on outreach and a technical assessment of community priorities and needs, the PROS Plan provides 20-year, strategic guidance for the entire park and recreation system. It also identifies specific park enhancement projects and a funding plan for the next 6-years. This plan addresses the requirements of the State of Washington Growth Management Act (GMA) and the State of Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO).
