Cincinnati Recreation Commission Master Plan for Service Delivery

Cincinnati, Ohio

The study investigated current conditions and usage levels for all facilities and programs, evaluated the quality and service delivery of programming, recommended future facility and programming improvements, and identified strategies and administrative policies necessary for implementation of recommendations. This project included the development of a city-wide Social Needs and Conditions Index for each of the city’s forty-eight statistical neighborhoods for evaluating both the total population and target populations such as teens and senior citizens. The final plan is a product of extensive public participation by utilizing statistically valid telephone surveys, 26 community-based workshops, focus groups representing special needs and concerns, a “Blue Ribbon” Advisory Committee and CRCs staff. To date, all of the new development projects in the $60 million 10 year Capital Plan have been accomplished.
