ORPA’s Outstanding Asset Management Award recognizes an agency or team for its exceptional management, maintenance/enhancement, and programming of an existing park, trail, natural area, recreation, and/or aquatic facility over time. Recipients demonstrate the vision and leadership necessary to protect and enhance public assets and resources while providing public recreation opportunities. Exceptional management may be demonstrated through quality maintenance and operations, efforts to retain and enhance the resource over time, creative problem-solving in the areas of budget, staffing, physical and/or environmental constraints to ensure the continued operation and availability of the asset(s) and/or introduction of new programs or activities that ensure continued use and optimization of the asset. Nominees must be members of ORPA.
Nominations are due Wednesday, September 2, 2020, by 5:00 PM.
