Nicholas Kuhn, Park Planner, Kimley-Horn
Recognizing the new direction that public agencies are moving in related to accountability, socially responsible engagement, access and innovation, this session will show how to rewrite your “System Plan” approach by focusing on emerging techniques and tools in public engagement and new approaches to level of service. Focusing on a new paradigm of an “experienced-based system,” this session will outline how to develop a vision for your community that represents true needs and priorities and elevates the performance of your parks.
Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to:
- Identify how to effectively engage residents in the planning process through evaluation of emerging techniques and tools meeting the needs of social distant requirements and equity.
- Understand innovations in Level of Services standards from nationwide experience.
