Original Story:

The City of Boca Raton's Recreation Services Department launched a campaign at a recent public outreach meeting on June 13 to determine needs and priorities for the future of Boca Raton's parks, trails, beaches, libraries, recreation facilities, athletic fields, programs and services. The campaign, called Boca ReCreate, is funded by the City and the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District and includes processes such as a demographic and trend analysis, staffing and maintenance reviews and a community needs assessment survey. The survey will be designed and implemented by PROS Consulting beginning in June 2019 and concluding in February or March of 2020.

"I'm excited for our community to work together to brainstorm new and innovative ideas that can be implemented in the next decade," explained Michael Kalvort, Recreation Services Director.

Phases of the community engagement campaign will include meetings and surveys with residents, stakeholders and key community leaders to learn about their interests and suggestions. The first public kick-off meeting was held on June 13 at the Downtown Library where the public provided insight and ideas to the consultant to enhance and maintain Boca Raton recreation. Stakeholder and key leader meetings continued through June 13 and 14. 

The public will be able to follow along with the progress of the needs assessment with updates on the Boca ReCreate website, and results will be presented in March/April 2020. The results will be used for future space, service and technology planning.

If members of the public were unable to attend the initial meeting, the City and Beach and Park District encourage all residents of the City and the District to continue to provide ideas, suggestions and comments at the bottom of the Boca ReCreate website under "Your Comments."
