Community Services Earns National Accreditation

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Sept. 28, 2017) – The Charlotte County Community Services Department on Wednesday earned national accreditation from the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of public parks, recreation and conservation.

The accreditation caps nearly two years of work by department staff and colleagues in other departments to comply with 151 benchmarks that measure the department’s level of quality in delivering services to and managing amenities for the public. Among the criteria considered for accreditation are administrative policies and procedures, strategic planning, staffing qualifications, accounting practices, program planning and maintenance and operations standards.

Charlotte County is now one of only seven Florida counties to have received CAPRA accreditation for its parks and recreation department. Aside from managing more than 60 parks, preserves and recreation facilities, the Community Services Department includes the library system, historical center and the natural resources division.

For more information, contact Maureen Broderick, Recreation Manager at 941-235-5012 or email Maureen.Broderick@CharlotteCountyFL.gov.
