Public input sought on DPR fee structure change ideas

The Department of Parks and Recreation is considering (see DPR Hosts Community Meetings to Discuss Fees and Regulations) changing its fee structure related to space/facility use.   Some options are:
  1. Switch to an hourly rate structure.   Currently, flat fees are charged.
  2. Create a new permit for users (organizations, businesses) that charge program participants.
  3. Set up a priority use system.
  4. Set policies for the use of DPR facilities for fund-raising activities.   The goal is for DPR to comply with District of Columbia law and allow clear guidelines for these commercial activities.
  5. Create policies related to the sale of foods and beverages.   The goal is for DPR to comply with District of Columbia law and allow clear guidelines for these commercial activities.

DPR is seeking public comment at three public meetings and by email.   The deadline for commenting is December 5, 2013.   The meetings will be held November 21 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, November 25 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, and December 5 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.   Locations and additional information are online; use the link above.
