Department Strategic Plan Update

In 2019, the Long Beach Parks, Recreation, and Marine Department launched an effort to update the 2003 Department Strategic Plan, made possible by funding from the City Council in 2019. Over the summer of 2019, we asked you, our uses and stakeholders, to share your vision for the future of the Department. We reached out through surveys, newsletters, and emails and connected with you at a series of movies and concerts in the park, and at other community events. After a pause in 2020 to address the City‘s COVID-19 response, we now invite you to review the result of that outreach effort below, and participate in the next round of community outreach, where we will delve deeper into the information we heard from our community.

Review Community Survey Results & Participate in the Department Follow-up Survey

 Department Strategic Plan Survey Results

Please Take Our Survey:

You can also use your smart phone to access the survey via this QR code. Please share with your family, your neighbors, and your community and encourage them to join us in sharing their thoughts. To promote the survey, you can print a poster to be placed in the window of your home or office, encouraging other to provide their input.


Participate in Stakeholder Meetings

With support from our community partners, we will be hosting a series of virtual stakeholder focus groups between January – March 2021. The Department will be inviting a representative from each group to participate in virtual small group discussions to capture feedback specific to different types of user groups.  An inclusive list of stakeholder groups can be found here: Stakeholder List. If you do not see your group, please contact the Department contact to be added to one of the stakeholder sessions: Lily Romero at lilia.romero@longbeach.gov. The results of the stakeholder sessions will be posted on this website after the sessions conclude in Spring 2021.

This new Strategic Plan will cover a 10-year period, from 2020-2030, and will guide operational, staffing and budgeting decisions for our Department.
