Strategic Plan & Goals

Strategic Plan

The 2012-2017 Wheeling Park District Strategic Plan creates direction for the future allocation of resources, financial stability, staffing levels, internal support and communication, organizational culture efforts, and the capacity for learning and growth. This Plan is the result of the collaborative efforts of Park District staff, Leadership Team, and the Board of Commissioners. It was prepared with input from the Community Survey conducted by Leisure Vision, and supports the Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan provided by PROS Consulting, Inc.

The strategic planning process creates a better sense of order and channels resources in a direction that yields the greatest benefit to Park District resident taxpayers and other guests, focusing efforts on what is truly important for the organization.
