BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Everyone is invited to help shape the newest six year plan for Bellingham Parks and Recreation.

A workshop later this month will focus on getting public comment for the city to update the Park, Recreation and Open Space Plan or Pro Plan.

The city is required to complete the new plan by 2014 to be eligible for state grants.

There will be a public opinion survey and more hearings in the coming months.

The workshop is Thursday, June 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Bloedel Donovan multi-purpose room.
