Q&A with Michael Klitzing

Celebrating 30 Years of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation

Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation has accomplished much in its first 30 years. What do the next 30 years hold? While we can’t tell the future, with Michael Klitzing at the helm, the organization is sure to continue its legacy of greatness.

Klitzing has worked with CCPR since 2003 and was named director in 2019. In that short time, the department went on to win its second consecutive National Gold Medal for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management.

To celebrate this year’s milestone, Klitzing took a moment to reflect on his time with CCPR over its 30-year history – how it started, the legacy he hopes to leave, and his thoughts on the next 30 years.
