All signified aye, motion approvetL <br /> Recreation Program Discussion: <br /> As the Comprehensive Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan was approved in August of 2009, <br /> the Board reviewed areas of the plan to begin to address some of the suggestions noted in the <br /> plan. The ETC survey which was included in the comp plan work noted that approximately 25% <br /> of Clive households had taken part in a Clive recreation program in the previous year which is <br /> under the national average of 30%. In November of 2009 the Board reviewed the area for <br /> Recreation Needs Assessment. The minutes from that meeting reflect suggestions to add to the <br /> resident participation rate by adding signs that better inform participants of the department <br /> offering the program, (some team sport programs are in schools outside of Clive and participants <br /> may not know that Clive Parks and Recreation is the host). The Board also noted that marketing <br /> efforts should add the benefits of participation along with free introductory classes, promoting <br /> volunteer opportunities and web site improvements including a splash page. Staff has worked at <br /> addressing many of these items including signs and outfitting staff in Clive uniforms, providing <br /> more information in the brochure and other marketing efforts. Although staff hasn't completed <br /> another survey to see exactly where they stand, they have examined participation rates and <br /> identified resident and non-resident participants in team activities and individual activities. <br /> Staff provided a spreadsheet that included league play (team) participation for 2009, 2010 and <br /> 2011. Progress has been made in the last three years, but generally team participation by <br /> residents falls short of a 30% participation rate by Clive residents. <br />
