                                 Message from the Director



October 2006

This is the third annual report developed since the adoption of our Department
Strategic Plan in June of 2004. Our goal in developing the plan was threefold. First,
we wanted to collect relevant data that could inform decisions by staff, Boards, Com-
missions and City Council in one place. Second, we wanted the report to serve as a
tool for creating an understanding of how the many and varied parts of our department
come together to achieve results, and third, and most importantly, we wanted the plan
to help us remain focused on the “big picture” needs of our community. I believe that
with each report we come closer and closer to our goal.

The report uses the City Council Overarching Guidelines/Priorities and the “one page”
version of the plan on the opposite page as its organizational structure. Our Core Val-
ues provide the basis for a department overview and review of our customer service
indicators. Our Vision statement allows us to recognize our more than 200 organiza-
tional partners, while we use our Community Outcomes help us to review specific
achievements of the past year. Lastly, in each of our goal areas; Parks, Recreation
Programs, Community Services, Community Facilities and Organization, we have pro-
vided updates on our progress as well as updated trend information.

We want to see the Department partner with the Community to provide innovative and
high-value parks, facilities, programs and services that promote an engaged healthy
community. I believe this report demonstrates our commitment to that vision.

Sincerely,

Corinne Centeno

Parks, Recreation and Community Services Director

  The Department’s process to bring forward, for Council consideration, a park stan-
  dard and in lieu park fee is the best example of living the Council’s overarching
  guidelines.    The process began with the Park and Recreation Commission and
  reached out to other commissions, staff in other departments, the development com-
  munity, neighborhood associations and the Chamber of Commerce for input into
  what will be presented to Council. Ultimately, the creation of new park space to keep
  up with our growing population will support a high quality of life, aesthetics and create
  pedestrian friendly spaces.

  With respect to Council priority areas, our work on two major infrastructure projects
  and support of the rebirth of downtown are worthy of note. Both the Synthetic Turf
  Conversion at Red Morton Park and Fleishman Park renovation were planned and
  designed in the 2005-06 fiscal year and scheduled for completion in the last quarter
  of 2006. The Department supported the downtown Courthouse Square design proc-
  ess, the downtown management team and brought hundreds of people into City Cen-
  ter with 12 Friday night Concerts.

  Department staff support Council’s youth and education goal by working under the
  Redwood City 2020 umbrella to support after school programs at 6 sites and applica-
  tions for additional funding under Proposition 49. Community Services staff is work-
  ing on transportation issues by participating on the Alternative Transportation Advi-
  sory Committee and working with the County/City Association of Government Trans-
  portation Shuttle Committee. The department is one of the City’s biggest water
  supply customers, but we are proudest of our support of recycled water in land-
  scaped areas in the Shores and the overall reduction in water usage we have been
  able to achieve through automated irrigation controllers and weather stations.

The following pages highlight the budget and staffing levels for each major division and
work group as well as their survey data over the past five years. In the Parks and Fa-
cilities Division, we survey our internal city customers in support of our service value.
Creativity in the use of technology and materials, from computer software to synthetic
turf installations have allowed the division to maintain customer services rankings de-
spite a reduction of 9.50 positions since 2002-03.

The Recreation and Community Services Division has focused on the value of excel-
lence, demonstrating their passion to do the best, by working with our Redwood City
2020 partners to create positive after school environments for children. In addition,
they have found creative ways to impact community health from changes in vending
machine content and camp snacks to healthy cooking classes. New ways to manage
the work load from on-line class registration, improvements to the website and a picnic
reservation system have helped us to serve the public despite the loss of just under 12
positions since 2002-03.

The following pages provide some specifics for each work group with the divisions.

        Services in this unit range from childcare to senior programs, from legal
        services to emergency food, clothing and shelter all provided through a
        combination of City staff and non-profit agencies. Staff transitions in 05-
        06 have decreased our capacity to provide timely service. The Human
        Services Financial Assistance Program which provides City funding to
        local non-profits is also managed within this work group.

                                      Redwood City Community

                                      Partnerships are the Key

     Partnerships are the essence of our vision for the community. Probably our most significant
     partnership is with the local elementary and high school districts because it allows us to coor-
     dinate facility and sport field usage as well as provide a variety of programs, under the Red-
     wood City 2020, umbrella to support youth and their families in Redwood City. Over Fiscal
     Year 05-06, a new Superintendent took over the leadership of the Redwood City School Dis-
     trict. The new leadership brought with it the need to reexamine and reaffirm existing opera-
     tional relationships. In this case, the questions have been around the goals for after school
     programs operated by the department and new funding opportunities under Proposition 49.
     We were also able to provide exclusive access to Red Morton Park tennis courts so that the
     Sequoia High School Boys and Girls Tennis Programs could continue while Summit Prepara-
     tory School was moved to the campus.

     Another partnership to highlight is with Veterans Memorial Senior Center Advisory Council
     (VMSCAC). The Council is made up of representatives of all of the Veteran and Senior
     Groups that make use of the Senior Center Facility and it is working with staff to understand
     the changing needs of seniors and senior centers through the National Council on Aging Ac-
     creditation Process.

     Lastly, we are extremely proud of our partnership with the youth and adult sports organiza-
     tions. In many cities, there is a contentious relationship between the City and sports groups
     that we have been able to avoid. All of these groups were made aware of and had input to the
     synthetic turf project. As a result, they were also willing to figure out how to make it work as
     fields went down for construction. A complete list of the 239 partners that we call on to move
     us toward our vision is included as Appendix 1.

The accomplishments we are particularly proud of that relate to the outcomes we want
for the community are highlighted below as are progress on Capital Improvement
Projects.

Community Image and Sense of Place
We strive for clean, green and safe public spaces. Despite personnel reductions in the
landscape, building maintenance and custodial sections, staff has added features at the
front of the library, repaired and refurbished the Jefferson Underpass for the opening of
Downtown, and renovated medians throughout the Shores. The Youth and Teen
Advisory Boards created and maintain a community garden just behind the NFL Alumni
Association Building in Red Morton Park.

Economic Development
Our special interest class programs directly support the local economy as they are
provided through contracts with more than 50 private community businesses.
Department special events including the Stafford Park and Downtown Live Concert
Series draw large crowds and encourage participants to frequent the City and its
businesses. Sports Tournaments serve this same function. This year, the Juventus
Soccer Tournament included 78 teams, Senior Softball brought 50 teams to the area
and CCS Girls Fast Pitch Softball brought 16 teams into the City. Many of the players
and their families need to spend the night, and certainly eat in local restaurants. Lastly,
staff has provided ongoing support to efforts to create, open and manage Courthouse
Square.

Safety and Security
We have started a Park Pal Program to identify neighbors of parks that would be willing
to communicate with us about what they see in parks after hours. The high usage of
Stafford and Red Morton Parks has created the need to explore a staff or volunteer
monitor program.

Health and Wellness
In addition to numerous classes offered for all ages, staff has changed snack offerings
at all facility vending machines and food and drink options at our camps. In the coming
year, we hope to produce a “trail” system guide for residents that will take you on walks
of various lengths in different areas of the City. We hope to produce an historic walk in
the Downtown Area. Oracle Corporation adopted the Family Harvest Site at Fair Oaks
Community Center which provides supplemental groceries such as fresh vegetables,
fruit, meat and dairy products to needy families on a monthly basis. A Spanish/English
diabetes management program was also started at the Fair Oaks Senior Center in
collaboration with Sequoia Hospital, , Samaritan House Free Clinic, Canada College
and El Concilio of San Mateo County.

Parks. Recreation and Community Services Department                    Annual Report 2005-06




Human Development
The Accessible Recreation Program continues to grow and move more participants into
the regular class system. The Child Care Provider at Fair Oaks Community Center was
recertified by the State Department of Education and received accolades from the State
Inspector. Internally staff has taken advantage of the City’s Manager’s Boot Camp,
and is active in Leadership Redwood City, Belmont and San Carlos as both participants
and presenters.

Cultural Unity
Our class programs embrace the variety of topics, cultures and age groups that make
up our community. We attempt to hire staff people that are representative of the
community that we serve.

Environmental Resource Protection
The Department is in compliance with STOPP Storm water Pollution Prevention
Program with respect to the use of pesticides and we continue to reduce our use of
these products. Automated irrigation systems and weather stations have greatly
enhanced our ability to save water while maintaining beautiful landscaped areas.

Community Problem Solving
Department staff participated in the City wide effort to confront the increase in gang
activity in the Heller Street Neighborhood. Fair Oaks Community Center received a
grant to provide targeted “wrap around” case management services to individuals and
families that have been chronically homeless or at risk of homelessness and hosted the
first annual Affordable Housing Fair sponsored by the Housing Leadership Council.

Recreational Experiences
From drama and music to computers and foreign languages and from sports to salsa
dancing, we have it all.

                                   PARKS STATUS UPDATE


    A1     A Community wide Park Needs Assessment has begun with the establishment of a Park
           and Recreation Subcommittee and the development of a consultant Request for
           Proposal.
    A2     In December of 2005, City Council directed us to pursue a general plan amendment to
           create a City Active Community Parkland standard of 3 acres/1000 residents and bring
           back a development in lieu fee proposal for their consideration. In this connection, we
           have developed an inventory of active community parkland; completed a nexus study to
           determine the amount of parkland needed to maintain existing standards and held dis-
           cussions with various parts of the development community as to the proposed standard
           and in-lieu fee.
    A3     A picnic reservation system was implemented in 8 parks. During the 2006 season, an
           online reservation system was implemented. Over the past summer, 518 or 58% of the
           887 total reservations were completed online. Revenues increased 13% from $23,940 in
           04-05 to $27,172 in 05-06.
    A4     The synthetic turf project at Red Morton Park has allowed us to make lighting improve-
           ments that we believe will add to the sense of safety by park visitors. The Police Depart-
           ment continues to respond to requests monitoring of specific problem areas.
    A5     Accessibility issues are considered in each park renovation project.
    A8     A subcommittee of the Park and Recreation Commission is receiving public input on pro-
           posed changes to the park rules in response to increased usage of parks.
    A9     The Red Morton Synthetic Field project is moving forward with the support of Field User
           Groups. We have met all of our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) requirements and
           have been able to continue to reduce electrical spending via re-lamping projects. Last
           but not least, automated irrigation systems have allowed us to make significant reduc-
           tions in water usage.
    A 10 Internal customer service rankings for parks activities have remained consistent.

    Over the next year, we hope to:

    •    Complete the process to bring a Park Standard and Development Ordinance to
         Council for its consideration.

    •    Begin Park Needs Assessment Study Process

    •    Complete recommended Park rules changes for Council consideration

    •    Develop recommendations on level and type of resources needed for enforcement of park
         rules.

    •    Evaluate the impact of synthetic field installations on staffing levels and types of positions.

  B1     No neighborhood survey data was collected to allow for this analysis. The City is expected to
         complete a survey in 2007. An internal group is meeting regularly to position the Department
         around the health and wellness theme. Improvements to the brochure and website continue
         including email blasts.

  Over the next year we want to:
  •    Understand changes taking place in after-school program funding with Proposition 49 and
       consider expanding to additional elementary school sites as needed.
  •    Explore how the Department can address teens needs for a safe place to gather downtown.
  •    Expand use of internet technologies to register for classes, programs, and facilities,
       communicate the availability of our programs and get feedback on services.
  •    Support special event programming that will bring visitors to the Downtown.

                    COMMUNITY SERVICES STATUS UPDATE




     C1    The Veterans Memorial Senior Center staff has targeted the “baby boomer” senior
           populations as the group they would like to provide additional service. They have
           implemented an outreach program to all of the local churches to get the word out to
           those that may be unfamiliar with the services. Center staff have increased heath and
           wellness related programming including a fitness facility to attract this group while they
           maintain and enhance services for many seniors over the age of 85.

           The Fair Oaks Community Center has expanded its outreach beyond those residents
           that have a specific social service need with exercise and other health related programs
           including art classes, karate classes, diabetes classes and weekly visits of the county
           mobile health clinic.

     C2    The Community Services Staff received a grant from the State Department on Disabili-
           ties to improve accessibility to all recreation programming and held its first Senior Center
           Monte Carlo Night Fundraiser. The Human Services Unit received a grant to bring an
           intern on board to allow for better case management for people seeking services from
           the Center’s Information and Referral Program.

     C3    The Senior Center is participating in an accreditation process which will help the staff
           identify ways to go beyond measuring satisfaction and move towards evaluating the im-
           pact of programs on a person’s sense of their health, wellness and quality of life.




      Over the next year we want to:

      •   Complete the Senior Center Accreditation Process

      •   Work on the implementation of the HOPE Plan to End Homelessness in San Mateo
          County.

      •   Expand case management services for individuals and families who are homeless or at
          risk of becoming homeless.

      •   Expand volunteer resources in support of all Community and Human Services Programs

     D1          Staff has identified the Veterans Memorial Senior Center Complex
                 as the next focus of major facility work. We have secured Capital
                 Improvement funding for a feasibility study for the site.

     D2          Staff continues to take greater advantage of the capacity of our
                 computerized management maintenance system to increase the
                 amount of time spent on preventative actions vs. emergency re-
                 pairs.

                 ties to provide for better management of building security and ac-
                 cess.

                 ues to bring in projects, on time, on budget. We continue to work to
                 make sure that the projects can be easily maintained and how to

    All department employees are recognized with recognition luncheon events twice per year. In
    addition, in January of each year all employees are invited to attend one of three “Meetings
    with the Director” which are designed to highlight accomplishments over the past year and our
    goals and issues for the new year. During these sessions, a simple survey asks staff to rate
    their level of employment satisfaction with 0 = very dissatisfied and 4 = Very Satisfied. The
    following table shows the average score for participants moved up slightly from 3.7 to 3.8.

    including the Profiles in Leadership Program, the Redwood City/San Mateo County Chamber
    Leadership Program and the Coaching and Mentoring Programs, as well as through their par-
    ticipation in professional organizations such as the California Parks and Recreation Society.

     Pages 8-10 of this report provide information on the performance measures used in each work

     Association Performance Measurement Program. Each Department Head instead provided
     measures to the City Manager and is responsible for collecting the data internally. Those
     measures include:
     • Total Revenues for Parks and Recreation Operations received from Endowments Grants
         and Foundations
     • Annual Operating and Maintenance Expenditures per Capita for Parks and Recreation Ac-

   Resources devoted to the Department over time have remained fairly consistent, The additional
   expenses are for the most part tied to employee cost increase tied to negotiated agreements rather
   than new programming.

   As the chart above indicates, the Department has five separate sources of
   funds.

   The 140 or Recreation Fund, 10% of the total budget, is set up so that reve-
   nues from fees and services will offset the costs of these budgets. While our
   total expenditures in this fund of $1,527,834, were over budget by $125,771, our
   total revenues in the 140 accounts were $1,604,226, leaving us with $33,346
   more in revenues than expenses. One of the ways in which we hope to meet
   our goal of reducing dependency on the General Fund is by making sure that
   our programs are being offered at a market rate, at the same time we develop
   ways to subsidize the costs for those that cannot afford the fees.

   The 150 or General Fund is the largest single source (69%) of financing. Here
   expenditures were under budget by $364,850. The Department also produces
   revenue for the General Fund from rentals and grants. In 05-06, these reve-
   nues totaled $1,703,307 or just under 17% of total general fund expenditures.
   The largest contributors are the After School Grants and funds from the Veter-
   ans Memorial Senior Center Advisory Council. The Department also receives
   funding from two Assessment Districts, both of which were renewed during the
   04-05 fiscal year.

   Lastly, Building Maintenance and Custodial Services are paid through an
   Internal Service Fund where costs are shared across all departments generally
   based on square footage. The staff has implemented a custodial fee program
   for private renters that will help to offset costs.

   Our management team will continue to hone our revenue forecasting and
   budgeting skills as we approach the development of the 06-08 budgets.

Revenue
The Department continues to look at ways it can provide programs without increasing our im-
pact on the General Fund. The following summarizes trends since 1999 in the area of fees
and grants.

Fees
Fees for classes and programs generated by the Department have increased by 47% over five
years from $1,064,623 in 1999-00 to $1,604,226 in 05-06.

of grant funding, followed by County grants for Fair Oaks Community Center, donations from
the Veterans Memorial Senior Center Advisory Council, and new in the 05-06 fiscal year the
grant from the State of California Department of Disabilities.
