Parks! Trails! Arts!


The Parks, Arts, Recreation, Culture and Conservation (PARCC) Plan is the functional plan for the Parks and Recreation Department and serves as the strategic plan for the department for the planning period of 2017 to 2030. This plan is a revision of the 2010 PARCC Plan. To stay eligible for Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office grants and the Washington State Growth Management Act, the plan is updated every six years.

There are a number of principal drivers for the development of this plan including:
  • Complying with City of Redmond Comprehensive Plan policy CF-1 for functional plan development, including a baseline Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the Parks and Recreation Department;
  • Complying with the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) for Parks and Recreation;
  • Meeting the pre-requisites for state grant funding offered by the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) for capital projects; and
  • Providing the strategic plan for the Parks and Recreation Department.
The recommended PARCC Plan 2017-2030 chapters posted on this page are currently moving through the review and adoption process. Multiple decision-making bodes review the document during this process making recommendations for it to pass to the next stage. The following graphic explains the process and the current status of the plan.
