Comprehensive Plan


The Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District is initiating a Washington State-mandated planning update to its six-year comprehensive park, open space and recreation plan.  This effort will update the park inventory and assess the adequacy of community recreation resources on Bainbridge Island as well as recreation programming trends. We will conduct a public participation outreach through this effort with meetings, online forum and survey.

The results of information collected will show areas of importance to community residents from which future goals and possible capital projects are derived. Capital projects can include park acquisition and park improvements or development. The updated comprehensive plan will set the direction for the next six years on which capital projects could be funded in upcoming annual budget cycles.  It also assists grant-seeking efforts regarding eligibility for state and federal programs. See links below for related documents.
