Released in August, the FRPA Impact Calculator places in the hands of FRPA members, a powerful tool to capture and display the impact of parks and recreational activities. Developed by a panel of national experts, and grounded in evidence based research, the Impact Calculator allows a park agency to enter a few data points of information and create a report of those findings. The reports are suitable for use internally or externally. This training will orient participants on how to utilize the tool, and more importantly how to use the results to share the story of your impact to your community. The Impact Calculator reports impact on property values, heath care cost savings, tourism, jobs, environment, and public safety. Attend this training and be equipped to understand impact and be prepared to share that with audiences within your community.
