Receive, consider and act upon a Service Agreement with Boy Scouts of America Tall Timbers District (C-2018-0283);
The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Department may realize some amount of new revenue as a result of this agreement.
The amount of revenue cannot be determined at this time as the market for Boy Scouts Merit Badge Classes to be provided at the Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park through the agreement is unknown. However, any expenses associated with the classes will be offset by the class revenue. The agreement provides for a 70/30 split of the revenues from merit badge classes, with Township receiving 70%, as is standard for most Independent Contractor agreements for providing recreation programs.
When the Board of Directors acquired the Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park, the Board identified potential uses and strategic partners included Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. As a result of discussions with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), Sam Houston Area Council, Tall Timbers District, BSA has proposed to utilize the Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park for Boy Scout training and scouting events in a partnership with the Township. A Service Agreement has been prepared in connection therewith (Attachment A).
As the Recreation Center is located within the George Mitchell Nature Preserve and Spring Creek Greenway, the facility is ideal for scouting activities, including camp outs, scouting classes, wilderness training, conservation projects and other scouting events. The proposed agreement would provide BSA the facility at no cost for BSA to conduct a variety of training classes and events throughout the year in exchange for BSA providing merit badge classes as an instructor for the Township as well as providing trail maintenance, outdoor and wildlife education events and conservation projects that benefit the Township.
Approve the Service Agreement with Boy Scouts of America Tall Timbers District as presented and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement as approved to final form by the Township Attorney.
