CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM 4

Meeting Date: September 23, 2008

Subject/Title: Accept Annual Report on the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Master Plan at the recommendation of the Park and Recreation Commission.

Prepared by: Tammy Homan, Management Analyst

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

RECOMMENDATION
Accept Annual Report on the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Master Plan at the recommendation of the Park and Recreation Commission.

PREVIOUS ACTION
City Council adopted the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Master Plan and adopted the Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration on June 25, 2002.

City Council accepted the 1st Annual Report for the Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan on November 25, 2003, the 2nd Annual Report on November 9, 2004, the 3rd Annual Report on October 25, 2005, the 4th Annual Report on October 24, 2006, and the 5th Annual Report on November 13, 2007.

BACKGROUND
One of the innovative parts of the City of Brentwood Parks, Trails, and Recreation Master Plan is the requirement that the plan is reviewed each year, with the submission of an annual report to City Council to evaluate the Parks and Recreation Department’s level of success in implementing the Master Plan. With the time and input that was required to complete the Master Plan, and the importance it plays in directing the future of parks and recreation in Brentwood, there was a strong desire to make sure the plan didn’t get approved and then sit on a shelf, never to be looked at again. The requirement of an annual report attempts to keep the plan up-to-date and current.

Parks and Recreation Department staff has compiled the 6th Annual Report for fiscal year 2007/2008 with review by the Park and Recreation Commission on August 28, 2008. Once again, this report has been formatted to fit the City Council’s adopted mission and vision statement, five core values, and the “Brentwood Way” of doing business. This year’s document has been expanded to include additional statistical information related to special events programming, use of volunteers, Activities Guide distribution, hours of service for the Youth, Park and Recreation, and Arts Commissions, as well as the Brentwood Advisory Neighborhood Committee (BANC). We’ve also included many more photos this year to provide visual imagery of the community events and activities that are coordinated by the Parks and Recreation Department.
