NRPA Gold Medal Submission
East Goshen Township Parks and Recreation (EGTPR) is proud to submit an application for the National Recreation and Park Association’s (NRPA) 2017 Gold Medal Program. The Gold Medal Award honors communities throughout the United States that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management and innovative approaches to delivering superb park and recreation services with fiscally sound business practices. The Gold Medal Award Program includes seven classes: five classes based upon population, one class for armed forces recreation and one class for state park systems in odd numbered years. At the beginning of each calendar year, agencies are invited to submit applications for consideration, with a deadline of mid-March. Finalists are announced at the end of April, and the Grand Award recipients are announced at the 2017 NRPA Annual Conference in New Orleans.
East Goshen Township residents – please take a minute to review our submission and associated planning documents. EGTPR has made great strides in the last three years and our successes are YOUR successes! If we are fortunate enough to be selected as a Gold Medal Finalist, our final submission would be a five minute video highlighting exactly why East Goshen Township is deserving of the award! We would love to have as many Township faces in the video as possible – contact Jason if you are interested!
