We first reported on this last Tuesday (April 19th), but just got another reminder from the City of Burien, which is seeking the public’s input to help update its Parks Plan.

Oh, and there’s a bit of an incentive to take the survey if you haven’t already:

“Adults and youth who complete one of our surveys will be eligible for a prize of either a $100 gift certificate (for youth), or a $100 credit towards classes (for adults) offered through the Parks and Recreation Department,” said Parks Director Michael Lafreniere.

Here’s more from the city’s press release, issued Wednesday afternoon (April 27th):

This spring, the Burien Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Dept. began the process of updating the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan. The plan update will guide the City in its management and development of park properties and recreation programs for the next six years. The process started with updating the inventory of the City’s parks, but will also include opportunities for public input, beginning with the Vision for Burien community forums currently taking place. (See www.burienwa.gov/vision4burien for details about the visioning forums). Other public meetings will take place over the next six months.

A survey is also available for the public to begin providing some input to the planning process. To take the survey, which is in both English and Spanish, go to the Parks Plan website at www.burienwa.gov/ParksPlan and follow the links. ?  ?Updating the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan enables the City to meet the requirements for park and recreation plans as set by the State of Washington Recreation & Conservation Office. It also makes the City eligible for a variety of state and federal grants for acquisition and development of parks and recreational facilities. The state requires that the plan be updated every six years. The document must also fulfill Growth Management Act planning requirements for Comprehensive Plan Elements as outlined by the Washington State Department of Commerce (RCW 36.70A). A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is developed based on existing conditions and proposed improvements for the various facilities and programs recommended.

Also, here’s more from our original April 19th post, including direct links to the surveys:

A Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan, also sometimes called the “PROS Plan,” is intended to provide guidance to the City in its management and development of park properties and recreation programs for the next six years. The last Plan was adopted in 2006 (see 2006 PROS Plan) and needs to be done again.

Here are direct links to the Parks Plan survey – if you haven’t taken it yet, we encourage you to do so.

  1. Our Questionnaire’s days are numbered … If you haven’t responded to our questionnaire yet, your chance to do so (and be eligible for a prize) is down to just a few days. It closes Wednesday, May 11.


  2. Thank you B-Town Blog readers! Since Friday, we have nearly doubled the number of respondents. If you’ve already responded, you’re welcome and encouraged to share the link to the survey with your friends and neighbors. Their input could mean a new park in their neighborhood, perhaps improvements to an existing park, or maybe a recreation facility we haven’t thought of. More at http://conta.cc/kTKIOJ
