Okanogan County Needs Your Input on Recreation

Dec 15, 2011

Okanogan County is updating the Outdoor Recreation Plan. A community survey is now available on the front page of the county's web site at www.okanogancounty.org

As the state, counties and cities face declining budgets it is more important than ever to focus limited funding toward the greatest benefit to our communities. The recreation survey will help the county to identify needs, level of service for existing facilities and future needs.

The 2010 census has identified a dramatic increase in our population of residents ages 50 and above from just 10 years ago. At the same time the population under 50 has declined substantially. The county wants to know what are the recreation interests of our aging population?

You are encouraged to take the time to fill out the survey and tell a friend who lives or recreates in our county.

Community meetings will be held in January to get additional public input.
