Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Overcoming barriers to accessing high quality arts activities by streamlining the set-up process, saving time and energy of the volunteers. The trailer will safely and securely store supplies so that they can be accurately inventoried, and will not be lost or damaged during the storage year. The volunteers will be asked if they saved time and energy by having all of the supplies in one location, by only unloading once. The effectiveness of this storage trailer will be measured by cleanliness and organization of supplies when they are brought out for the next festival. A written inventory will be created, and cross checked for accuracy prior to the next festival.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This trailer enables the RotR volunteers to easily transport equipment to and from the park. It allows for safe and efficient transportation and storage of all RotR equipment during the off season.
