5. Explain how you developed your goals for next year s budget. What do you hope to accomplish using the funding from the City of Gainesville? The

Board and staff of Elachee Nature Science Center continually assesses the needs and growth opportunities for the organization. Goals for programs and facility are incorporated in the budget, and are based on continuous improvement and the goals established in a current strategic plan. The City of Gainesville funding will continue to support the services and programs that Elachee provides for an ever-increasing population and visitor base. The 3,000 increase requested will be used in hiking trail bridge repairs. The City of Gainesville s recent Master Plan for Parks identified the need for natural surface trails, particularly in the southern side of Gainesville. Elachee maintains 8 miles of trails and has identified 45,000 in capital improvements needed on trails. We have been successful in raising over 15,000 (from donors) towards this goal in the last year. Trail usage and impact continues to grow substantially as do the maintenance needs.
