Long-term Recreation Strategic Plan

    Key Action:
    To provide the framework for future direction, program modifications and long-term guidance for the Corps of Engineers National Recreation Program.

    How It Will Work:
    The Long Term Recreation Strategic Plan PDT has spent the past year examining and evaluating the needs and abilities of the Corps of Engineers Recreation Program along with current trends and fiscal realities faced by the Corps. The team is developing a plan that considers the national and regional mixes of recreational opportunities provided at Corps recreation areas; levels of service; accumulation of uncompleted non-recurring, non-routine maintenance; the long term prospect that budgets will not keep pace with inflation, and the ability to adapt to changing conditions.

    A comprehensive strategy to transform the Corps Recreation program and position it for the future.

    What does the Strategic Plan mean for me?

  • The recreation program is facing change from internal and external forces that will modify how we do business. This is a priority of Mike Ensch's. It is real and not just another exercise.
  • These changes will affect all involved in the recreation program.
  • We need to anticipate the known and become flexible and adaptive to handle the unknown.
  • We need to prepare our programs, staff and customers for these changes.
  • Input from the field has been a vital part of the process.
  • The finalized plan will be implemented in FY 11 for immediate use as applicable and in FY 13 budget development and beyond.

    See the FAQ’s for additional information about the Long Term Recreation Strategic Plan.
