PROS Plan Public MeetingAt its most recent meeting (Monday, Feb. 27), the Burien City Council approved and adopted the 2012 Parks, Recreation & Open Space (PROS) Plan (Resolution 328).

Sometimes called simply the PROS Plan, this plan “provides guidance to the City in its management and development of park properties and recreation programs for the next six years,” according to a statement.

The last Plan was adopted in 2006.

“A PROS Plan enables the City to meet the requirements set by the State of Washington Recreation & Conservation Office,” the city said. “Having a Plan that meets those requirements enables the city to be 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 done every 6 years. Finally, a proposed Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is included, based on existing conditions and proposed improvements for the various facilities and programs. To prepare the plan, an extensive public involvement process was used to gather opinion of needs and requirements from community members.”
