Anchorage Parks and Trail Report Card

Public Involvement, Fundraising, Project Management and Implementation

In collaboration with the Anchorage Park Foundation, Holly’s team developed and implemented the Anchorage Park Report Card Survey and the Trail Report Card Survey, an innovative, citizen-based asset condition assessment tool.

The data collected by over 2000 park volunteers and neighbors was used to develop the Parks & Recreation Department’s annual strategic action plan, and to fundraise for and prioritize capital improvements. As a direct result of the report card data, more than $4 million dollars has been invested in Anchorage neighborhood parks and 4 million will be invested in the Anchorage trail system.
