Environmental Action Plan

The Wheeling Park District Board of Commissioners unanimously adopted the Park District Environmental Action Plan. As a public agency dedicated to parks, recreation, and open space, the Park District is in a unique position to take a leadership role across a wide spectrum of environmental practices to help ensure their communities have the tools to learn sustainability and be sustainable. Through policies, plans, and actions, Wheeling Park District leads by example. This plan provides an important overview of best environmental management practices that can be beneficial to residents and the community, now and in the future.

The Environmental Policy and Environmental Action Plan provide the important direction, while the District's 2012-2017 Strategic Plan outlines the initiatives and goals. Together, with tools available through industry leaders such as the Illinois Parks & Recreation Association, National Recreation and Park Association, and American Association of Landscape Architects, the Park District's plan takes a systematic approach, analyzing current practices, providing recommendations, and a strategy for achievement. The Environmental Action Plan is a valuable resource for the Board of Commissioners and staff for making sound environmental management decisions.
