Community Survey | Lake Tye & Cadman

Welcome to the City of Monroe Lake Tye and Cadman Site Master Plans questionnaire!

To begin, it's important to note that master plans are about expressing a long-term vision. Features shown in master plans illustrate how they’d be coordinated and laid out over the landscape, but it’s understood that the plan is mainly a guide for implementation, with more detailed design and fundraising to follow at a later date. For that reason, it’s critical master plans reflect the activity and character traits residents think the parks ought to include. 
The following questions will help guide the planning process and the overall vision for Lake Tye Park and the Cadman Site, including community expectations and a generalized list of features and activities for each park. 

To help illustrate the level of detail in most master plans, here's a collection of images from other regional projects:

* Q1. Lake Tye: Vision - Monroe’s comprehensive plan and the parks and recreation plan envision Lake Tye Park as a place that’s abuzz with activity, serving folks in the surrounding neighborhood but also those coming from further away. Like today, the lake and surrounding parklands are imagined to support a wide range of family-oriented activities, with improvements that help Lake Tye grow into a more regional attraction – something that serves as a lively western gateway into the city. 

On a scale from one to five, where 1 = “Strongly disagree” and 5= “Strongly agree”, to what extent to you agree with this vision?

Now, let's continue with the Cadman Site. Here's an map of that area - a former gravel pit to be transformed into a park. Note that part of the site will continue gravel operations, though visually seperated from the future park. Click here to see a Google Map™ view in a new window.

* Q2. Cadman Site: Vision - Monroe’s comprehensive plan and the parks and recreation plan envision the Cadman Site as a place that makes the most of its proximity to the Skykomish River. Features here, it’s imagined, should spotlight the natural environment, including trails through the park, shoreline access and things that build understanding of the river and local ecosystems. The Cadman Site is also seen as an important part of a larger “Skykomish Greenway,” a feature-rich greenbelt along the river that folks near and far might associate with Monroe.

On a scale from one to five, where 1 = “Strongly disagree” and 5= “Strongly agree”, to what extent to you agree with this vision?

* Q3. Lake Tye: Guiding Principles - Master plans often involve “guiding principles” that help shape and prioritize design ideas. The following lists several concepts that may relate to Lake Tye.
