The Spokane County Parks department is updating it’s parks, recreation and open space plan and wants community feedback.

The six-year strategic plan guides the overall goals and policies of the department and identifies projects to pursue, said Paul Knowles, the Spokane County parks planner.

“It really guides our actions for the next six years,” he said. “It’s been an extremely helpful tool to apply for grant funding for.”

The county is seeking public input on the plan and will hold a series of public events over the coming weeks.

The open houses will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the following locations and days:

— Deer Park Library (208 S Forest Ave., Deer Park) – Tuesday

— Cheney Library (610 1st St., Cheney) – Wednesday

— North Spokane Library (44 E Hawthorne Rd.) – Thursday

— Airway Heights Library (1213 S Lundstrom St., Airway Heights) – July 8

— Moran Prairie Library (6004 S Regal St.) – July 9

— Argonne Library (4322 N Argonne Rd., Spokane Valley) – July 10

Attendees can drop in, view information boards and talk with park’s staff. The input received at these events will be incorporated in the 2020 Park Plan Update, which is anticipated to be finalized by the end of this year.
