Capital Facilities Action Plan

Capital Facilities Action Plan

The Capital Facilities Action Plan chapter of the PROS Plan brings together the findings from the Demand and Needs Assessment with adopted policies from the County's Comprehensive Plan and the department's Fiscal Policy to develop an achievable improvement plan for the Pierce County park system from 2020-2030. 


The Capital Facilities Action Plan includes a list of major projects that are likely to be completed in this timeline, as well as a summary of the revenue sources used by the Department to accomplish these improvements.

Proposed 2020-2030 Major Projects

The Capital Facilities Action Plan includes a list of projects that are considered "Capital Projects," which means that they require a large investment or come from a funding source that requires all funds expended to be accounted for in the County's Capital Facilities Plan. 

The list is organized by trail projects, system-wide improvements, and project location by Region. 

System-wide improvements are investments that will be made throughout the park system.
