The Community Conversation will focus on two plans the City is currently working towards updating. These plans are the City Comprehensive Plan, and The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan. Both plans require public input to ensure they align with the future our Citizen are looking forward to.
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) plan is a six-year guide and strategic plan for managing and enhancing park and recreation services. It provides a vision for Sunnyside’s park and recreation system and establishes a path forward for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, open spaces and recreational opportunities. The PROS Plan creates a framework that will allow the City to respond to new opportunities as they arise, and to ensure that parks, facilities and recreation programs meet the needs of Sunnyside’s residents, employees and visitors now and into the future.
The Comprehensive plan for the City of Sunnyside is intended as a future guide related to development decisions. The plan was developed in compliance with the Washington State GMA, which established planning goals and regulations to guide the development of comprehensive plans for local governments. The goals for the Comprehensive Plan include reducing sprawl, encouraging affordable housing, and encouraging efficient multi-model transportation.
