PROS Plan Hand-Off to the City Council
At the January 18, 2022 City Council Meeting, the Parks and Recreation Commission officially presented the Final Draft of the 2022 PROS Plan to the City Council. Commissioners shared their experience in developing the Plan thus far, and answered questions from Councilmembers on specific elements of the Plan.
Mayor Nice stated the following after the Commission's presentation: "The City Council greatly appreciates the work of the Parks and Recreation Commission over the past 27 months. With numerous meetings, public engagement by survey and open house, and countless hours of studying and learning about the elements of a PROS plan, you have contributed to a forward looking and comprehensive guide for Mercer Island’s parks, opens spaces and recreation services. As a token of our thanks, commission members will receive a certificate of appreciation and a small gift for your excellent work on this topic."
Councilmembers and the project team will discuss the PROS Plan again at the February 15 City Council meeting. This public hearing will include a more detailed discussion of the Capital Improvement Plan and projects list, as well as implementation strategies and future work stemming from the Plan.
