Project description:

Every six years, the City of Bothell updates its Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan. The Plan guides the Parks and Recreation Department on future capital projects, funding priorities for grants, and recreation offerings. S&A was hired to conduct a public engagement effort to ensure Bothell residents were informed and involved in the development of the PROS Plan so it would reflect community priorities.

Results:

S&A led outreach and public involvement for the planning process, which included a teen focus group, several pop-up events to inform residents and provide opportunities for feedback on parks and recreation facilities, website updates, and a mailed and online survey. Public input led to the creation of a PROS Plan that had broad community support and was approved unanimously by the Bothell City Council.
