Session Description:
Parks system planning has changed dramatically over the last several years. Trends and influences such as fiscal conservatism, place-making, travel teams, social media, urbanization, aging-in-place, climate change, and sustainability have made old practices obsolete.  This session explores new models and metrics that address these changes, including service-delivery and level-of-service alternatives.
