Park District embarks on 3-year Strategic Plan

The Medinah Park District, having recently completed its 2014-2017 capital improvement Master Plan, now will turn its attention and efforts toward the completion of a 3 year Strategic Plan.  Strategic Planning is an organization’s process of defining its direction and making decisions to allocate its resources to pursue this strategy.  All agencies rely upon a well thought out, sound and precise set of directives that allow them to move toward the future with the community’s best interests at the forefront of the parks & recreation planning process.  A successful agency is one that tailors its services to meet the needs and demands of its community.

Over the past 12 months, the Medinah Park District has engaged its Park Board of Commissioners, administrative staff, the community and local business associates to create a set of strategies that will take us into the future.  We will be communicating a final time-line in the near future as relates to the publication of the plan.  The Park District, as we are certain all in the community will, looks forward to what we hope will be a highly anticipated future.
