As part of our comprehensive planning process, we are conducting a needs assessment of recreation facilities which involves an inventory of our existing facilities. The question of including facilities that are owned by homeowner associations and operated by our public school system has come up. Some say we should since they provide recreation, others say we should not since our residents do not have open access to them. Has anyone else run into this question? If so, what did you do and how did that work out? Some have suggested a sort of weighting scheme so these facilities could be included, but at a discount. Is there a reasonable basis for applying such a discount--for example, reducing the acreage of these facilities in the inventory by 20%?
