We serve thousands of youth through the partnerships with 6 different Youth Athletic Associations. We also continue to collaborative with theFayetteCounty Board of Education so that the citizens can have the opportunity to recreate with indoor recreation activities. In 2011, the Parks and Recreation Department searched for and developed a new partnership with the Board of Education to maximize each others resources. This collaboration developed into the use of the Old East Fayette Elementary School Gym by the Parks and Recreation Department. What was an empty space and storage facility used by the Board of Education, now serves the Parks and Recreation Department to utilize for a variety of programs during the day and on weekends. As we move forward, staff will continue to serve and foster partnerships that will allow us to meet the needs of the community individually and corporately.
