Meeting Date: 05/04/2011

Department: Parks Recreations Library CR  


Resolution No. (R)11-27 Amending the Existing Parks and Recreation Fee Schedule to Increase the Parks and Recreation Facility Usage Fees


Staff recommends approval of the parks and recreation facility usage fees as outlined in Attachment B.

Fee increases are recommended in the following areas: ball field rentals, ramada rentals, open/lap swim, pool lane rentals and pool season passes. The fee increases recommended herein will allow the department to realize additional revenues in compliance with the Revenue and Fee Policy. 

The Cañada del Oro (CDO) Riverfront Park facility, which was partially funded with Pima County Bonds must follow the Pima County fee structure and as such does not include non-resident fees at this location. The proposed fee increases at CDO Riverfront Park are consistent with the existing fee structure established by Pima County. Non-resident and resident fees are shown for James D. Kriegh Park facilities, as there are no limitations in the fee structure at this location

Every effort was made to avoid dramatic increases, and the potential loss of existing users, while still increasing the cost recovery for the various functions.  The Department worked closely with the Finance Department and the Assistant Town Manager to create a recommended fee schedule that would maximize revenue long term.  It is expected that fees will continue to be increased on an incremental basis as appropriate.  

Attachment B summarizes the proposed fee increases.

On October 16, 2002, the Town Council adopted Ordinance No. (O)02-32 which granted the Town Council the authority to establish Parks and Recreation facility usage fees by resolution. On December 3, 2008, the Town Council approved Resolution No. (R)08-88, establishing the Parks and Recreation Department Revenue and Fee Policy. The facility usage fees were most recently increased on December 2, 2009.  

Annual revenue projections based on the proposed fee increases are shown below.   This assumes that existing usage levels will remain constant. 

Fee                                      Estimated FY11 Revenue              Projected FY12 Revenue        

Ramada Rental                             $12,000                                             $21,000

Ball Field Rental                            $59,000                                             $78,500

Pool – Daily Admission                  $24,000                                             $41,000

Pool – Passes                               $15,000                                             $22,000

Pool – Lane Rental                        $85,000                                             $127,000

If the recommended fees are approved, the total increase in revenue is estimated at $94,500. 

The Council may wish to consider the following motion:

I move to approve Resolution No. (R)11-27 with rate increases effective July 1, 2011.
