The county is updating its long-range Comprehensive Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan for urban and rural areas of unincorporated Clark County. This blueprint for the future will guide the purchase of land for parks and the development of parks, trails, sports fields and other amenities. A good place to start is watching a four-minute video, produced by CVTV, on the parks plan update. The video is available on the Clark County Parks’ home page.


You could also take an online community survey. The survey includes 14 parks-related questions, such as asking respondents to rank the overall need for different park amenities. The survey will take about five minutes to complete and is available on the Clark County Parks’ home page.


Or you could attend an open house, where residents can meet with county officials, learn more about the process, get answers to their questions and provide written comments during a series of three open houses:

• 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, La Center Community Center, 1000 E. Fourth St., La Center.
• 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, Camas-Washougal Fire Station 42, 4321 N.W. Parker St., Camas.
• 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, Three Creeks Community Library, 800-C N.E. Tenney Road, Salmon Creek.


The Parks Advisory Board has been working on the plan update since it was appointed last summer. To read more, check out the documents on its webpage and scroll down to its meeting “grid” to access different documents. The County wants to invite your comments on how the county should invest limited resources by sending an email to parks@clark.wa.gov. Please include “Comp Plan” in the subject line.


Comments also can be mailed to:
Clark County Parks
Attn: Comp plan
4700 NE 78th St.
Vancouver, WA 98665


If you have questions, you can reach them at: Clark County Parks at (360) 397-2285
