Come help prioritize Forest Grove parks projects

Forest Grove's Parks & Recreation department is continuing the conversation about Forest Grove’s recreational future — and seeking community input.

Wednesday, June 8, in the Rogers Room at the Forest Grove City Library, 2114 Pacific Ave., city staff will hold two events in two languages allowing all residents to weigh in on — and ask questions about — proposed projects and programs related to the city's Parks Master Plan.

For the past several months, parks staff members have collected comments from residents regarding their needs and what ideas they have for improving their neighborhoods.

Now staff is asking for help to prioritize those recommendations.

What will provide the biggest benefit? What should happen first? What can wait?

The city can’t pay for everything all at once, but it can set priorities and work its way through the list as money becomes available.

No preparation is needed and all are welcome.

The Spanish-language workshop will go from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and the English-language workshop will follow from 7:30 to 9 p.m. To learn more about the event, the projects and the Master Plan, visit forestgrove-or.gov/city-hall/parks-recreation/parks-a-recreation.html.
