The Strategic Plan adopted for the council calls for us to develop a long-range property plan, and keeping everyone informed on the progress of our emerging property plan is a priority for the council. We have put together teams of staff and volunteers who have been working with a property consultant from GSUSA to create a comprehensive review of the properties, current programs, and usage. These teams were at the Kickoffs at the end of August to gather more feedback.
The task groups collected their research and created the council's Long Range Property Plan, following the timeline below. Here is a printable version of the timeline with more information.
The fall meetings, scheduled at our various outdoor properties around the state, were intended to share the information that the three task groups—property, program, and marketing—have been gathering. The online surveys taken by adults and girl members have provided us with a wealth of information. The property group has visited each of the properties to update the in-depth surveys made at the time of realignment. The program staff has data based on the use of our properties and feedback related to on-site programs. This information will inform a fresh vision for outdoor program on Council properties. The volunteers and staff on each of the task forces are looking forward to gathering your input as part of the process of drafting a plan for the board.

The process then moved in January to the Board of Directors, which reviewed and commented on the preliminary plan. This draft was reported out and workshopped at the February meetings. Click here to view the presentation from the winter meetings.
Based on these conversations, the Long Range Planning Team created a second draft that the Board of Directors reviewed at the regularly scheduled March meeting.
Following that, in April, there were a final round of meetings for comment on the plan. Click here to view the presentation from the spring meetings.
The Board voted to approve the recommendations on May 5, 2014, and the recommendations were shared at our annual meeting on May 28, 2014. See the presentation from the annual meeting here.
