Kittitas County, WA -
The Public Works department is requesting public comment of the 2021 Recreation and Tourism Plan.
The plan outlines the choices that are available, and the means for implementing preferred actions found to be of most benefit to all Kittitas County residents as well as the accommodations of increasing year-round recreation and tourism pressures. This document is a revision to the previously adopted 2016 Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Plan (PROS), as well as the Kittitas County Tourism Plan, that outline the County's recreational demand and proposed implementation actions found to attract and benefit tourists as tourism is a major economic development objective and opportunity for Kittitas County.
The 2021 Kittitas County Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan (PROS) is organized in two parts. Part One addresses recreation elements that are now being targeted for lead action by the County (Trail Systems, Resource Parks and Special Purpose Facilities) and includes the role the County is expected to play in strategically implementing all elements of the Recreation and Tourism Plan. Part One contains priority action items expected to be implemented by Board employees using County financial and human resources. Part Two of the plan defines actions proposed to be led by others - the remaining seven elements of the 2016 PROS Plan (Recreational Programs, Cultural Arts, Resource Conservancies, Historical Resources, Playgrounds and Fields Recreational Facilities and implementation items contained in the 2016 Tourism Plan).
