  • Welcome Wheeling Park District Mission Statement To provide memorable experiences in Park Board of Commissioners parks & recreation that enrich our communities. President’s Letter Dear Residents: Ahhhh…. The smell of spring is in the air. As we awaken from the slumber of winter, it’s time to take to the outdoors and enjoy all the great parks and recreation opportunities the Wheeling Park District has to offer. Have you had your memorable experience today? Tom Webber President While it may seem that winter was a “slow” time for the Park District, nothing could be further from the truth. Earlier this year, the Wheeling Park District entered into an agreement with PROS Consulting LLC to develop a Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. This Plan will act as a guide for the Board and Staff to make decisions that best serve the long-term park and recreation needs of the community. As you may recall, in August of 2005, Leisure Vision conducted a Community Attitude and Interest Survey to help establish priorities for the future development of park and recreation facilities, programs, and services within the community. This document was the first step in developing a Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. PROS Consulting is charged with considering the results of the Community Attitude and Interest Survey, the Needs Assessment, the Park District Vision, and the Keith Pecka available financial resources in meeting the goals of the Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. Vice President The goals of this Comprehensive Plan are to: • Assist the Park District in determining and prioritizing where to invest its resources with regard to recreation services, current facilities, and park improvements. • Assist the Park District in determining best land use and land management practices. • Assist the Park District in determining what recreation programs and services should be offered and evaluating those that should be discontinued. • Evaluate the Park District’s current open space, indoor recreation space and recreation services – compared to community Cheri Klumpp needs and current standards and trends. • Provide guidelines for future planning and updates to the Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. In the coming months, PROS Consulting will be finishing their work and will be providing the Board and staff with the results of their analysis. The Park District will be releasing the results of this process and providing details of the impact this plan has on the future. The summer edition of In the Know, due to be released in May, will provide much of this information. So enjoy the warm spring and summer months that lie ahead. Soon the parks will be filled with sounds of children and the pools will be the destination for people looking for a fun way to beat the heat. As always, there is a memorable experience waiting to be had at the Wheeling Park District. Jon Kolssak I look forward to seeing you in the parks. Yours in Park and Recreation, Tom Webber President, Board of Commissioners Staff Directory Note: Staff e-mail addresses are available on our Web site.
