Analysis of Performance
Participation in Recreation programs did not meet the anticipated goal for the first and second quarters. Three factors contributed to the lower figure: 1) Construction at the Senior Center - the expansion project caused several closures during the second quarter and created parking difficulties, as well as affected space availability for program activities. Grand re-opening took place in July 2014 with expanded programming starting in September. 2) Closure of the Youth Activity Center during the Foothills Mall re-development has limited programming space particularly for Child Development programs. The new Foothills Activity Center (FAC) is expected to open mid-2015. 3) Methodology in accounting for number of participations of swim team members during practices and meets has changed from previous cycles, resulting in a lower participation count.
