2015-2019 Master Plan
This plan identifies the current and future needs of the community, updates level of service standards, assesses CCPR’s financial strength of CCPR, and provides a strategic plan with 5-year implementation goals and objectives. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan represents CCPR’s continued commitment to providing a quality park and recreation system for the City of Carmel.
This version of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan will address changes to the vibrant community since the last plan was adopted in 2015. Population growth, evolving recreation trends, development of new parks and facilities, and the success of thousands of programs have increased and modified the demand for parks and recreation services in the community. As a result, these changes have created the need for new strategies for managing the park and recreation system for the next five years and beyond.
Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) is recognized for its innovation and high quality parks and services, as demonstrated in 2014 by becoming one of only 140 nationally accredited agencies and winning the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. In order to build upon these successes and remain focused on the needs of the community, CCPR is in the process of updating its Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
