Analysis of Performance

Recreation facilities opened on very limited schedules during this period, controlling number of participants in facilities and practicing social distance with scheduled disinfecting protocols. Several activities were eliminated due to budget restraints. Summer mass registration for activities was cancelled, with limited offerings available for on-line enrollments. The pandemic caused City Park Pool, Senior Center Pool, and Mulberry Pool to be closed throughout this period, greatly impacting targeted participation numbers. Northside Aztlan Community Center, Recreation's primary fitness and gym facility, did not open until late July.

The Recreation Department will continue to explore creative ways of engaging the community in healthy activities and serving the needs of multiple user groups, while encompassing federal, state, and local safety guidelines.
As pandemic restrictions change or economic factors demand, the Recreation Department will respond to any needed adjustments to increase or decrease services appropriately.
