Public Input Needed for Parks 5-Year Strategic Plan
Milwaukee County Parks Seeks Public Input in the Development of 2015-2020 Strategic Plan
Members of the community will have the opportunity to provide input on the Milwaukee County Parks 2015-2020 Strategic Plan at any of five presentations or via an online survey. Town-hall style meetings will take place March 17-26, throughout Milwaukee County.
Parks Director John Dargle, Jr. will introduce the process and discuss the next steps on how the public can stay engaged throughout the plan’s implementation. Dr. Angela Allen, the plan facilitator from UW-Cooperative Extension, will then present the draft plan and encourage public input to assist in establishing strategic objectives for the Parks Department. The 30-minute presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
The public will be asked to evaluate the Parks self-identified strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges to help shape strategic initiatives.
“We are looking forward to hearing from our park patrons and community partners,” said Dargle. “It is through the involvement of the public, staff, the Parks Advisory Commission, County Board, and the County Executive that we are able to develop the best road map for the future.”
