There is no single organizational model for managing urban parks. Instead, cities have found varying ways to provide management and programming.

Kathy Blaha Consulting (KBC) is a parks projects adviser to nonprofits, grant-making organizations and public agencies providing guidance on creating and implementing projects for parks, with a focus on public-private partnerships.

KBC provides strategy around partnership development and park planning goals. We offer expertise in working with a few or a myriad of stakeholders on collaborative endeavors. And we work to leverage strategy and engagement into successful projects.

Kathy Blaha is highly accomplished as an effective facilitator and communicator with expertise in building partnerships and collaborative ventures that produce results. She has spent her career working for nonprofit organizations and has a strong sense of entrepreneurial community service. Kathy brings an awareness of the practical challenges of creating and keeping partnerships gained from being in the field and a track record of success.
