Si View Park Program Plan

Si View Program Plan 2021

Si View Metro Parks has a strong commitment to enhance the quality of life of residents in Snoqualmie Valley through delivery of parks and recreation. In 2021, we’ll be developing a Recreation Program Plan with a help of a consulting firm to define strategies, services, and direction for public recreation programming to meet the needs of the growing community and advance the District’s mission.

Community engagement and input is essential for the success of this process. Over the past few months, the Si View Program Plan project team has been mapping local demographics data and regional trends and collecting community input from stakeholders and focus groups.

We are currently in the midst of a statistically valid resident needs survey which was mailed to a random sample of approximately 3,000 District residents. If you have a survey in your mailbox, please complete and return it at your earliest convenience, every response is valuable!

In this process of data collection, several themes have emerged as high priorities for a number of groups. Some examples include: continuing the focus for a connected local trail network, exploring new opportunities and options for outdoor recreation programs and facilities, ensuring collaboration and partnerships are utilized to deliver services and maximizing use of existing park spaces.

Our next step is a community-wide online survey to gather input from the greater Snoqualmie Valley communities we serve. This online survey is your opportunity to share your priorities for future recreation programming and services – what services are most important to you and how should they be delivered. This survey is open to everyone in the community, and we encourage your participation.

Coming soon: Community Survey!

What does a recreation program plan accomplish?

  • It engages the community, leadership and stakeholders in meaningful, varied and a creative public engagement process to build a shared vision for recreation programs, as well as understand how to best serve current and projected recreation needs of the Snoqualmie Valley community;
  • It utilizes a wide variety of data sources and best practices to predict recreation trends and patterns of use and how to address unmet needs;
  • It determines unique Level of Service Standards for the District to project appropriate and prudent actions regarding recreation programs and services and assess current recreation needs for programming;
  • It shapes financial and operational preparedness through innovative and “next” practices to achieve the strategic objectives and recommended actions and implementation strategies, while aligning with best practices;
  • It develops a dynamic and realistic strategic action plan that can ensure long-term success and financial sustainability for recreation programs and facilities, as well as action steps to support the diverse community that the District serves.
