National Park and Recreation Month

Printer-friendly version

DID YOU KNOW? Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives officially mandated July as “Park and Recreation Month.” Here are just a few of the ways that Parks & Recreation enhances our quality of life:

  • According to a 2014 article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, higher levels of green space were associated with lower symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress.
  • The Centers for Disease Control found that increased access to places for physical activity led to a 25.6% increase in people exercising 3 or more times per week.
  • Children that have easy access to a playground are approximately five times more likely to have a healthy weight than children that do not have easy access to playgrounds.
  • Between 2000 and 2012, more than 85 studies have been published that link parks to better physical and mental health.
  • Parks, and particularly the trees in parks, have a direct and important impact on our quality of life. In fact, a 2006 study found that the air pollution removal value by urban trees in the United States is estimated to be 1.56 billion pounds per year – a value of $3.8 billion.

Parks and recreation services are vital for our communities—from protecting open space and natural resources, to helping fight obesity, to providing activities and resources for all walks of life—Park and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value parks and recreation bring to communities.   Parks and Recreation not only give us the opportunity to become our best selves, they also super power our communities economically, improve the environment and provide equitable public spaces for all.

This July, America is celebrating the super powers of parks and recreation and all the ways these local, community resources add value to our daily lives. We’re challenging everyone to discover their super powers at our parks and recreation facilities whether it’s running a mile, swimming a designated distance, meeting a fitness goal, building a new network of friends, or finding your green thumb. We hope you'll celebrate the month of July with us through parks & recreation! http://www.brisbaneca.org/about-parks-and-recreation

Catalog of Enterprise Systems

(Pursuant to SB 272 and CA Government Code 6270.5)

An enterprise system is a software application or computer system that collects, stores, exchanges and analyzes information that the agency uses that is both of the following:
• A multi-departmental system or a system that contains information collected about the public.
• A system that serves as an original source of data within an agency.


An "enterprise system" does not include any of the following:

• Information Technology security systems, including firewalls and other cybersecurity systems.
• Physical access control systems, employee identification management systems, video monitoring and other physical control systems.
• Infrastructure and mechanical control systems, including those that control or manage street lights, electrical, natural gas or water or sewer functions.
• Systems related to 911 dispatch and operation or emergency services.
• Systems that would be restricted from disclosure by Section 6254.19.
• The specific records that the information technology system collects, stores, exchanges or analyzes.

 

SB 272 Requires that the City:
1. Create a catalog of enterprise systems containing:

• Current system vendor
• Current system product
• System’s purpose
• A description of categories or types of data
• The department that is the prime custodian of the data
• The frequency that system data is collected
• The frequency that system data is updated

2. To make the catalog publicly available upon request

3. To post the catalog in a prominent location on the agency’s website.

Exception
If the public interest served by not disclosing the information described clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure, the local agency may instead provide a system name, brief title or identifier of the system.
