Action Update! We listened to what you told us in 2018, we are making progress, and we are committed to making good business decisions with the tax dollars you provide. On October 13, 2020 we will present to the Board of Commissioners what has been accomplished and our next steps to achieve your top priorities for us which is focusing more on neighborhood parks, playgrounds, youth programs, Washington Park Community Center, trails, along with arts and cultural programming. To further invest in these priority areas for our community, the District must free up operational and capital dollars. We are a park district rich in history that was built through the generosity of its citizens, strategic partnerships, and dedicated team members. Even in times of significant economic downturns, we’ve been able to consistently provide outstanding park and recreational offerings to our community; however, with declining revenue both through fees and a declining tax base, along with population and demographic shifts, it has become difficult to provide the same level of service without an increase in revenue or a decrease in our footprint. We ask that you take a minute to view the 2020 Action Plan and see how we are following your advice and recommendations. This is YOUR Rockford Park District! www.rockfordparkdistrict.org/priorities

Keeping youth active and engaged! It might have been the first time dozens of youth experienced Lockwood Park but we know it’s not the last time! Thanks to a grant from @the_cfnil our Youth Sports Outreach team introduced various sports and facilities to youth through community partners such as @100strong.rockford and @pr.magr. Lifelong memories were created and we think there are lots of new hockey players, golfers, and animal lovers within this group.

The Rockford Park District Board of Commissioners accepted a letter of resignation from Commissioner Julianne (Julie) Elliott. “It’s been an honor and joy working with the Rockford Park District Board of Commissioners, Executive Directors Webbs Norman, Tim Dimke, and Jay Sandine, the entire leadership team, along with all the men and women of the Rockford Park District, as together we help people enjoy life. You will always be my park district family,” said Commissioner Julie Elliott. Before joining the Board of Commissioners in 2013, Julie worked for the Park District for 20 years. During her time on the Board, Julie served as a Liaison to the Park District Foundation and participated in several committees including the development and long-term vision for Levings Lake Park, Ice Facilities Master Plan, and the Arts in the Parks Committee. “Commissioner Elliott is a life-long participant, supporter, and advocate of the Rockford Park District and we can’t thank her enough for all that she has done over the years to impact this organization. Julie spent countless hours cultivating ideas, responding to citizens’ suggestions or concerns, making tough budget decisions, attending events, and bringing people together to experience the power of play. She has an enormous amount of love for everyone and every place in the Rockford Park District,” said Rockford Park District Executive Director Jay Sandine. Julie will remain an important volunteer and contributor to the park district and community supporting her passion for Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens, Levings Park, and other facilities or programs. https://rockfordparkdistrict.org/news/commissioner-julianne-elliott-announces-retirement-from-the-board-of-commissioners-district-begins-process-to-fill-vacated-board-seat The current board vacancy will be filled by appointment of the Board and whoever is appointed will have to run for the seat in the April 2021 election. Applications will be available online on August 31, 2020.
