Task Force 

Upon recommendation from the Tumwater City Council, the Parks and Recreation Department has formed a Parks and Recreation Task Force and will hold a series of meetings regarding funding for parks and recreation.

One of the main elements of the Tumwater Comprehensive plan is identifying a dedicated source of funding for parks and recreation to avoid competing with other City priorities.  The Parks Task Force was established as a community-based process to consider funding methodologies and make a recommendation to the Tumwater City Council for a dedicated long-term funding proposal. The Task Force includes one Councilmember; members of the Parks and Recreation Commission; and other community members representing user groups, athletic groups, aquatic interests, trail supporters, environmentalists, and parks and program users.  

Tumwater has a long history of working with residents on the development of parks and facilities. Public input is both important and appreciated, and is critical to our success.  Anyone wishing to attend the Task Force meetings may do so. Please see the schedule listed below.
