Purpose of the PARCC Plan

  • 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; 
  • Understanding changing community needs and demands on the Parks & Recreation system; and
  • Providing the strategic plan for the Parks and Recreation Department.
