Dear St. Thomas Rotary Club:
Help shape the future of parks, recreation and culture in St. Thomas!
The City of St. Thomas is updating its Parks and Recreation Master Plan to guide decisions over the next ten years. The Master Plan will impact all residents through the identification of park and facility improvements, introduction of new activities and amenities, consideration of new service models and more. It will assist the City and its partners in making strategic investments to encourage a healthy community, strong economy and sustainable environment.
Your organization has been selected to participate in a stakeholder workshop to learn more about your group and how we can work together to meet community needs. The 90-minute session will present an overview of the planning process followed by a group discussion involving other organizations with similar interests.
Topics of discussion include:
What services does your organization offer? What markets do you serve?
What are the most pressing issues and priorities facing your organization?
What trends are affecting your organization? Are there barriers to participation?
How well are existing parks, facilities and services meeting your organization’s needs?
Are additional parks, facilities and services required?
How can your organization, the City and others work together to meet these needs?
Please join us on:
