The Parks Division plans, develops and maintains the City’s extensive park system.The Division plays a key role in the stewardship of the natural environment and the engagement of our residents, through the delivery of a variety of outdoor programs, services and events.
The "strategic" part of this planning process is the continual attention to current changes in the organization and its external environment, and how this affects the future of the organization.
Skills in strategic planning are critical to the long-term success of your organization.
Community engagement opportunities will be offer during these plan updates.
Full implementation of the Plan is estimated at $306 million (2018) in new one-time general capital, $51 million (2018) in self-funded capital (community amenity contributions) and $26 million in new annual operating funding over 10 years.
Example If all 30 nurses on a pilot unit successfully implement a new medication reconciliation and order form, then spread would be replicating this change in all nursing units in the organization and assisting the units in adopting or adapting the change.
We are making the finishing touches on the new Parks, Recreation & Culture (PRC) Strategic Plan, which will provide a blueprint for determining PRC facility and service decisions until 2027.
Efforts were taken to ensure a broad range of residents across geographic areas and demographic groups were consulted, including ideas fairs, surveys, workshops, focus groups and community meetings.
In total, feedback from over 5,000 individuals and more than 250 community groups was considered in creating this Plan.
Spread efforts will benefit from the use of the PDSA cycle.
Units adopting the change need to plan how best to adapt the change to their unit and to determine if the change resulted in the predicted improvement.
