Capital Budget

Capital Budget is a budget for building, and in some cases maintaining, a permanent facility, structure, space or large piece of equipment.


Capital Expenses

Capital Expenses refer to costs for building or establishing a permanent facility, structure, space or equipment.

Community Building

Community Building in recreation settings is focused on supporting and empowering people to build relationships and a culture that enriches lives, promotes active and healthy lifestyles, and provides opportunities for individual and community growth.


Community Capacity

Community Capacity is a combination of a community’s commitment, resources, and skills. It takes leadership and effort to incrementally influence community capacity. Strengthening community capacity builds skills and relationships that foster health and well-being.

Community Recreation Plan

A Community Recreation Plan connects to local government plans, reflects community values and interests, gives consideration to the available resources, and answers three questions: Where are we now? Where would we like to be? How are we going to get there? A plan prioritizes actions based on the current state of recreation and a practical vision of the future and justifies the investment of resources into recreation infrastructure, services and programs.

Community-Driven Recreation

Community-Driven Recreation recognizes that people, parents, teens, coaches, and volunteers are the informal leaders who make recreation happen; activities are meaningful and accessible when they are created by the community for its own benefit.

Cultural Activities

Cultural Activities reflect local heritage, social traditions and popular trends.  



Direct Program Delivery

With a Direct Program Delivery approach, recreation staff choose and offer the programs, events, or initiatives they think are best for community members. Making these choices relevant requires a good understanding of the local community interests, environment, and resources.
