NRPA National Conference

Determining and Forecasting Park Maintenance Performance Budgets


In this session, Harry Lorick and Lydia Cox discussed how Parks Departments can annually determine and forecast their parks maintenance performance budgets and specifically how four separate parks departments have completed this process. They covered how they determine required resources to maintain existing parks and additional dollars required for the maintenance of any new parks that are acquired once the budget has been determined. In addition the actual budget by activity can then be compared to the work that is being completed to make sure the department is meeting its projected goals and improve productivity. In addition the session covered the steps in setting up an activity based performance budget and specific tools and technology that was useful in the process.
