GreenPlay Public Workshops on Resource Allocation & Cost Recovery

 

This year the Kent Parks Recreation and Community Services Department has engaged the services of GreenPlay, a nationally renowned parks and recreation management consulting firm to assist in developing our Resource Allocation and Cost Recovery Policy which includes a model, philosophy and policy based on the community’s values for parks and recreation, services, the vision for the future and the Department’s mission.  This model, based on The Pyramid Methodology will be a component part of our planning and budgeting processes. This model is intended to assist the Department in developing a fiscally responsible process so we can proactively plan for the future.  In order to develop a tax payer investment/resource (subsidy) and cost recovery philosophy for facilities, programs and services offered by the Department, we are asking for your help. 

   

As a component of the planning process, GreenPlay will be conducting a series of workshops for parks, recreation and community services partners and users.  Because we value your opinion, we invite you to participate in this process.  The workshops will be held throughout the day on January 28 and 29, 2014.
