       Manager
                            In this edition, I would like to briefly touch on Recreation and Parks and how it
        Patty Acuna         serves the community. This division offers an array of classes and programming
      Kristin Buhagiar      for virtually all ages—from tots to seniors! Indeed, when we develop programs,
        Jennifer Lev        events and activities, we always keep in mind the needs of our community. Our
                            overarching goal in creating our programs and activities is to enhance physical
     City Librarian         and mental well-being, create a strong sense of community, improve academic
         Karen Buth         performance, build relationships, and promote the health and welfare of our
                            community. Of course, many of our activities take place at our terrific public
Library Services Managers   parks in Beverly Hills. The City takes great pride in keeping them clean, beautiful
         Alice Kuo          and highly functional so they can be appreciated and enjoyed by everyone.
      Marilyn Taniguchi     The City offers two large parks, eleven mini parks and one dog park, all
                            carefully maintained with adjacent parking.
    Human Services          Another very important and emerging element of Community Services revolves
     Administrator          around arts and culture, and I am very pleased to highlight the fact that our
                            Department is currently embarking on a new and exciting arts and culture
          Jim Latta
                            initiative. Through the Arts and Culture Expansion Initiative, the City of Beverly
                            Hills seeks to increase the visibility of arts and culture, expand awareness of
   Customer Services
                            cultural facilities and spaces, and encourage more arts and cultural activities

      Stephanie Harris      promising arts and culture programming. I invite you to open the Community
