The Department of Recreation and Parks has created a Strategic Plan that will serve as a comprehensive report for sharing the department’s strategic initiatives. This is a five-year plan with regular updates based on yearly goals. Developed in response to the department’s post-pandemic transition and under new leadership, the Strategic Plan reflects a detailed process to reframe goals and strategy to better service the community. Initiatives for developing the plan included:

  • Extensive listening sessions with staff and consultants
  • Leadership training
  • The establishment of new mission and vision statements
  • Public engagement sessions
  • Collaborative work groups focusing on 10 identified goals

The Strategic Plan provides residents with a glimpse into the future initiatives designed to enhance community well-being and alignment with the County Strategic Enterprise Plan.
