The City of Yelm is updating the Yelm Parks & Recreation Plan. The subcommittee that is revising that plan has created a survey to enlist public participation and input. The plan will identify the short and long term goals for improving and adding to the Yelm park and recreation system. This survey will help identify short and long term priorities and is essential information for the City as it applies for grants and identifies other funding sources to achieve plan goals. Please help us create a better Yelm by participating in this survey.
