The project logo Big Idea #8 Increase Awareness

According to residents, the biggest challenges for the Department’s operations are building awareness and fitting into the public’s busy schedules. Many people do not know what current programs exist. While program guides are still important, increasingly, people use email, social media, and word of mouth to learn about what’s available. Mecklenburg Park and Rec can expand its marketing effort with a bold, clear message that reaches a broader audience with information about the County’s amazing offerings.
