- Park passes will be easier to purchase.
- Department seeking the ability better track and analyze pass data.
Welcome to another Transformation Tuesday!
We’re excited to share with you our latest Transformation tracking spreadsheets (Initiatives & Projects). Progress is being made on a number of initiatives and projects, and new items have been added. We hope that you take the time to read the information and e-mail us your feedback. The purpose of these documents is to provide a centralized location for tracking Transformation effort planning and progress in order to provide transparency into the Transformation effort approach.
One of the new projects that have been added to the list is the Park Pass Reformation Project. The Transformation Team formed a committee and gave them the task to review each pass to ensure that all legislative mandates are being met, departmental policies are up-to-date, and that the existence of each pass is relevant for today’s Californians and all visitors.
Technology can help the California Department of Parks and Recreation achieve this. Some of the anticipated benefits to the public and the department include:
- Simplify the process of attaining a park pass.
- If a pass is loss or stolen, the pass can be voided immediately and the issuance of a new pass will be provided.
- Statistical and visitation data relating to pass holder populations will be available.
- Trends can be analyzed.
The Park Pass Reformation Project is an exciting and transformative effort. It is a win-win for our visitors and for the California Department of Parks and Recreation. Much work is ahead of us, but the energy and commitment to attain positive results is palpable.
