Discussion about Budget Cuts to Parks

NRPA is hosting an online town hall with leaders from parks & recreation from around the country on managing and dealing with proposed and actual budget cuts. A description from NRPA’s policy shop on the event:

What happens when your budget gets cut by 20%? 50%? Or even more? Do you lay off staff? Can you justify raising fees? Are you able to creatively trim services? Unfortunately, this isn’t an imaginary case study–these situations are real and they are occurring all across the country in communities of every size.

The forum offers a view into the life of park agencies, and insights on how to make the best of a bad situation.
