As soonas a contract is established and initial planning and kick-off conversations can be held with the consultant, staff will updatethe Commission with a timeline and action plan for the implementation of this project.STAFF RECOMMENDATIONThe staff recommends that the Commission approve the scope of work for the Service Portfolio Project.MOTIONMove to approve the scope of work for the Service Portfolio Project.9 G-1


Service Portfolio Project ScopeWith blanket contractor for Professional Planning ServicesSummaryThe "Service Portfolio Project" contains the following three main areas of focus:Service Inventory & AssessmentIntensive Review of OCPR Services and Facilities. This assessment utilizes theMcMillan Service Assessment Matrix process to determine market position and providerecommended provisions strategies such as enhancement or reduction of service,collaboration and advancing or affim1ing market position. This assessment will provide anexus relative to which services are central to OCPR's purpose and place in the market.The process will include analyzing each of our services relevant to: our mission andgoals, market position in the community, and other service providers in the area includingtheir quality, quantity and economic viability. The assessment includes a market analysisand evaluation of industry trends, as well as the identification of alternative provisionstrategies. This is the first phase of the development ofOCPR's Service Portfolio.Cost Recovery TargetsThis component utilizes the Pyramid Methodology to evaluate current and expected costrecovery philosophies and expectations and develops consensus on intended goals. Thisevaluation will lead to the development of cost recovery targets for each service providedby OCPR as determined through a facilitated, stakeholder-focused process involvingstaff, the Commission and the public. The deliverable will be a well-crafted philosophyfor cost recovery and subsidy allocation that will lay the foundation for strong,sustainable financial management decisions.

Box 30257Lansing, Ml 48909-7757Dear Mr. Olson:This correspondence is in follow up to an April 4, 2012 conversation held between staff ofthe Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission and your offices regarding futurepotential partnership opportunities between our two organizations.As discussed, Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission staff has been workingwith Michigan State University to explore potential ORV opportunities in Oakland County.We also understand that a need was expressed for a southeast Michigan facility.One site that has been particularly appealing to this use is an active gravel mining site inOxford Township of approximately 1,200 acres in size with opportunities to also preserveover 400 acres of natural area and wetlands there. In addition, Oxford Township officialsare interested in participating as an active partner for field sports at this site.The proposed concept for acquisition and potential development of this site was that itwould be acquired by the DNR through a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grantand leased on a long-term basis to OCPR. Future developments of the site, based upon amutually approved master plan, could be funded through DNR ORV funds and/or theMNRTF.The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission would be open to consideringthis concept, but we recognize that before that consideration could take place, there issignificant detail that needs to be resolved.I'd appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you and staff at your earliestconvenience. I can be reached at 248.858.4944 or 248.343.6214.Thank you for your interest and consideration. We look forward to meeting with you.1 u ilv1

The prefabricated membrane is resistant to ultravioletrays and microorganisms. The tear and puncture strength of the polyester fabric is superb,and it is impervious to most caustic chemicals, including those found in nature, animal fats,and oils. It shows no ill effects from either heat or cold.The Duro-Last membrane is non-curing to provide excellent weldability for the entire life ofthe roof system. A patch, curb, stack or any other necessary additions or alterations caneasily be applied by heat welding the Duro-Last membrane/accessory to the existingmembrane. Hot air welding is used to bond all field seams. The welds can be made with ahand-held unit or a walker welder. Hot air seaming eliminates the need for chemicals,torches and other unsafe, non-manageable seaming systems.TEST DESCRIPTION TEST METHOD METRIC RESULTS ENGLISH RESULTSThickness, Nominal ASTM 0 -751 1mm 40 milsWe•ghl ASTM 0 ·751 1. 1 kg per m 2 • 0.25 lbs. per SQ. lt.Trapezoidal Tear Strength, ~n .

LETTER FROM A BABY BOOMERI am a Baby Boomer, born on April 24th, 1950. A Taurus.So what, you ask?Well, I figure if you know a little about who us Boomers are, what we want, and how tofind us you can program successfully for us.So, who am I? I am college educated. I like to think I'm still young. Okay, maybe mybody isn't , but my head and heart still are. I'm interested in learning more about "whoI am". That's been a preoccupation of my generation. And, I'm interested in learningabout other people and cultures - especially when they are now a big part of my owncommunity. Civil rights and not being predjudiced is something I've always been acutelyaware of. I also care about the state of the world, but I quit watching TV news and Inever read a newspaper. I am tired of all the negativism. I want to do the right thingsfor the earth and I am interested in nature. I love good food and wine and am always(-· ready to pull into Me Donald's. I want to be in a group, but not in a crowd. I'm an' individual. I'm generous, but I choose how and when I spend my free time and moneybecause there isn 't much of it, and I sure don't want to waste it. I have worked mywhole adult life and have been a little too free with money. Fact is, instead of savingfor retirement or paying off credit cards, I've spent it on my grown kids and my agingparents. I am now trying to retrain myself to save money and pay off debts.When I think about retirement (I'm almost 60), I think about leaving some stressbehind and finally doing some of the projects I've been gathering up for years. I havea closet full of colorful fat quarters and a new sewing machine that's only been outtwice. I have oil paints, canvases and how-to paint books gathering dust. And, I havevolumes of half-written memoirs and stories I want to finish. I belong to a smallwriter's group, so that's the only 11 hobby" that gets any of my attention. I've been sobusy giving 110/o to the rest of my life, these things have been placed on hold.lWhen I do retire, I am going to be a docent at an art museum so I can pass my love ofart on to others, and I want to do something to maintain my self-esteem and givemeaning to my life.I also look forward to traveling with friends and family. I want to go to Egypt, Europe,Machu Pichu and all the places I've read about or seen in the movies.10 C- 29


I'd also like to take classes that fulfill my need to learn and help me get my art projectsgoing, but I want to feel that I am joining a friendly group. I don't care if the people areall my age or older or younger, as long as the atmosphere of the class is structured andthere are pleasant surroundings. I want the leader to know what they're doing and giveboth group and individual instruction. I am happy to pay a fair price. I'm not used togetting much for free.I will locate the class by googling 11 painting groups & classes, my location 11 • I'll happily goto your senior center if it fills the bill, but don't call the class, "Painting for Seniors".Just call it "Painting for the Fun of It - No Experience Necessary 11 • If you want to makeyour senior center Boomer-friendly, make it spacious, bright, a non-interruptiveatmosphere, pleasantly and sparsely decorated, with music in the background - maybeSerious radio playing Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin or the Turtles. (You can mix it in with TheAndrews Sisters - I can share.) If I see people in slippers, a pile of old magazines in thecorner, or if the place smells like last night's cabbage, I will probably not come back(I like people of all ages, but don't make me think I'm in the old folks home.)I'd like to be greeted professionally at the front desk, and made to feel welcomed, butnot trapped. I want to be treated with courtesy and respect.I may find your classes/activities in a circular sent to my home, but I will look for itunder 11 Art Classes", not "Senior Activities". I may also pick up a flyer from a place I goto often, like the grocery store. If I want a class about wine, I'll check in a local storethat sells it; and, if I want a special exercise class (I doubt it ...), I'll call a gym. I wishcommunities worked together and shared each other's information and resources for the"good of the communit/'. I don't know (and I don't care) where one entity stops andanother s~arts . Territorialism is all about walls, and walls keep more people out than in.(Remember Berlin and Cuba?)If I'm looking for a trip, I want to know it is open for adults of all ages. If I go on agroup tour, I want both structure and freedom. I want a fair price. I want some thingsincluded, and I want free time to explore with the friends who I'll get to sign up with me.If we are herded or talked down to we won't be back.And , when I choose a trip flyer, it will clearly state what is included and will have colorfulgraphics and look professional. If it looks like a church bulletin run off on a mimeographmachine I can't take it seriously. I know I'm picky, but it's part of the way my generationgrew up. You know, "have it your way" and all.This is just my story, but the rest of us Boomers are a lot like me. Hope this helps.Karen Schwarck, August 2009 {J)10 C-30

As you may recall I was at the prescribed fire at Independence Oaks on St Patrick'sday. After the fire I went on line to The Fire Cache (a company that sells wildland fire gear) to get a new pair of nomexpants and noted that they were soliciting for fire photos of wildland fires and prescribed fires.I sent in a few pictures and gave it no further thought. I received an e-mail from the company a few days ago letting meknow one of my photos was selected. I received a few copies of the calendar today and Independence Oaks burn is the'fire' for March. I'll be sure to get a copy of the calendar to your office as soon as I can.(The attached photo is a photo I took today from the 2013 Wildland Firefighter's Calendar of the proscribed fire atIndependence.
