EPRD Strategic Plan 2022-23

Help EPRD ELEVATE OUR COMMUNITY!  

EPRD is developing a Strategic Plan to guide the direction of operations, programming, and capital investments over the next 3-5 years. Input from our community will be crucial to how EPRD serves you in the future. In December, watch for opportunities to share your insights through engagement stations at EPRD facilities and an online engagement website to participate at your convenience. Early in 2023, watch for our Communitywide Survey.

Here are several upcoming opportunities to give input to EPRD’s Strategic Plan:

  • In-person Engagement Stations at Buchanan and Wulf Rec Centers and the Lake House
