Implementation Plan

City of Raleigh

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources

The Implementation Plan continues to work with the

eight sub-systems defined during the visioning phase by

propagated each with action items that work together and

individually. Action items are defined by the department

and are meant to be reviewed, revised and implemented

on a regular basis. Each action item is a progression of

a goal and measurable objective and may require the

allocation of additional capital or operational funding.

Many of the action items included in the strategic plan

came out of ideas first heard through public meetings,

surveys, and on-line comments. Additional action

items have been developed to ensure that the needs and

priorities identified in the assessment are met. In all cases,

these action items are tied to a defined goal and objective.

Strategic Plan

At the center of the Implementation Plan is a ‘living’

Strategic Plan that concentrates on the implementation

of the vision, goals and objectives, and guiding

principles through four critical components: action

items; establishment of timeframes for implementation;

identification of partnerships; and projection of short-

termcapital costs. Individual action items are tied to public

input gathered and documented throughout the needs

and priorities assessment. Priority of individual action

items are tied to public input gathered and documented

throughout the needs and priorities assessment. Together,

these four components will allow the Parks, Recreation

and Cultural Resources Department to review and as

needed, efficiently revise the strategic plan to reflect

changing conditions, demographics or needs.

In additional to the eight sub-systems’ action items, certain
