Dear Y Family,


I trust you had a lovely weekend in the Sunshine. So spectacular is the Skagit Valley!


One of the great things about our valley is the opportunities provided through the various Parks and Recreation programs. The Parks and recreation departments from the county and cities within the county have been fabulous partners to our Y in our move to Hoag Rd. 


Today we have the chance to return some help in the form of information and perspective. The Skagit County Parks and Recreation Department is seeking feedback as they develop strategies and priorities for their Park development and improvement plan. Please see the notice below from the County Parks office and complete the survey in the link below.


As we begin this Thanksgiving week, I wish you a wonderful time with family and friends as create memories and give thanks together.


Have a Happy Thanksgiving!






Skagit County Survey Notice: 


SKAGIT COUNTY – After four information gathering meetings at public locations throughout Skagit County, the Skagit County Parks and Recreation Department (SCPR) is now exploring the community’s interest through a public opinion administered survey. 

The survey will augment the information already gathered and help SCPR in prioritizing the way in which they provide parks and recreation in the County over the next six years.    The focus of the Comprehensive Plan update is to plan park facilities for Skagit County’s growing population. The public is encouraged to access our survey and help us in creating an exceptional plan.

The new plan will be the guiding document for County-affiliated programs and parks, including open space and paths. The plan is intended to lay the groundwork for the future of the County park systems. It explores potential park development and improvements, prioritizes strategies to meet and achieve a level of service that fits the needs of county residents, and describes existing and potential funding sources needed to meet the desired level of service and maintain park facilities and recreation service.

The public may access the survey from the attached link or by visiting the Skagit County Parks and Recreation website.
