implementation plan

The Vision Chapter of Raleigh’s Parks, Recreation and

Cultural Resources System Plan formed eight sub-systems

defined by a series of goals and objectives. Each of these

eight sub-systems are propagated with action items

that work together and individually. Unlike the goals

and objectives that will help guide the development and

delivery of services and facilities over a long period of

time, action items 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 (Chapter 3) are met. In all

cases, these action items are tied to a defined goal and


The strategic plan focuses 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-term capital costs.

Priority of individual action items are tied to public input

gathered and documented throughout the needs and

priorities assessment (Chapter 3). 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.

components reflect the overall progress of the System Plan.

The following pages and tables identify actions items for

each of the eight sub-systems. Each action item advances

a goal and objective of the vision. Goals are identified

each action item are shown in the right columns and may

consist of multiple on-going timeframes.

Three categories
