provide your input on basin recreation’s strategic action plan

This spring, Basin Recreation worked diligently on the update to its Strategic Action Plan. The District regularly reviews its long-range strategic planning documents to ensure residents’ needs and desires for recreation facilities and programs are met and that resources are properly prioritized. While systematic in its approach, public input on the draft plan is invaluable in establishing direction for the future. We hope that you will join us on June 18 to discuss the draft plan and provide feedback.

The draft plan is available HERE. Please take some time to review the plan. Then join us on Thursday, June 18 at 6pm via the online Zoom platform to provide your feedback.

The Strategic Action Plan is a compilation and resulting evaluation of three preliminary analyses. First, the District partnered with Park City Recreation to update its Community Needs and Preference Survey using the services of Y2 Analytics, a Salt Lake City-based professional polling firm. Second, Basin Recreation completed an update to its Needs Assessment with the help of Zions Public Finance, Inc. Finally, potential locations for recreation facilities with specific site concepts were explored in the Mountain Recreation Facilities Master Plan, which was completed in February 2017 by Landmark Design as a joint planning effort between Basin Recreation, Park City Recreation, and the Park City School District.

The Strategic Action Plan builds on these updated studies to organize resources to achieve definitive goals within a specific period of time, looking to both short and long-range decision-making. The plan was developed using the data contained in the previous studies, supplemented by additional information gathered during public workshops and meetings, the project website, and internal meetings with Staff and the Advisory Committee, which includes representatives from Summit County Council, the Summit County Manager’s Office, the Basin Recreation Administrative Control Board, Park City Recreation, Park City School District, and the Utah Olympic Park.

If you are unavailable to join us on June 18, the presentation, as well as the draft plan will remain available on the project website for one week. Patrons are welcome to submit comments at any time during the week. We look forward to hearing from you.
