Park Authority Seeks Comments on 5-Year Plan

The following press release was issued by the Fairfax County Park Authority:

The Fairfax County park authority is seeking public comment and response to the  Draft FY 2014 – 2018 Strategic Plan. The plan, developed internally over the past two years, reflects the challenges faced by the Park Authority during these austere economic times, focuses on the diverse and growing needs of the near future, and seeks to outline the strategic vision that when adopted by the park Authority Board will provide guidance and direction to meet agency goals.

Focus areas include the management and protection of property, optimization of park programs, fostering and promoting natural and cultural resources through adoption of stewardship values and ethos, encouraging healthy lifestyles, promoting technological  advances within the agency, as well as expended communication efforts and community engagement initiatives.  The broadly based plan serves to communicate key strategic objectives to stakeholders, partner and the community at large.  Between now and June 2, 2013, you can review the document and let your views be known.  Let the Park Authority know if you like the plan or if some key objectives or visions need to be re-evaluated.   This plan must reflect the community’s image of what a nationally-accredited, top-ranked park system should be.

Review the draft plan and share your thoughts via the feedback form, or if you prefer via email at    For more information, call Debbie Babcock-Daley, Strategic Initiatives Manager at 703-324-8665.
