  2. My office is working with recreation and adult education departments in a rural part of Maine to help them increase access to physical activity among low-income citizens. To that end, we provided funds for 7 departments to jointly purchase 7 GPS units for, primarily, geocaching programs. The units are owned by the group, not individual departments, so they will have access to more GPS units than if the departments were to act alone.

    We are in the midst of crafting a memorandum of understanding to facilitate the units' shared use. We were unable to find anything on-line to help in drafting shared use of equipment specifically but, we did craft something from what resources we could find. The next 12 months will be a trial period. If the shared use agreement works, I'll post the MOU. In the meantime, if you know of similar projects, please pass them along.

  3. I was at a conference in San Francisco last week and was really amazed at all the different and creative forms of joint use that are happening in Daly City. The speaker, Mike Stallings, was just a fount of knowledge on how to build and nurture these agreements. He had joint use agreements worked out for just about everything from shared physical activity spaces, to parking, to a service kitchen and a greenhouse. It was so cool. Daly City is very diverse and his rationale: none of us has enough resources to do everything we want on our own so we have to collaborate. His definition of collaborating: putting his own resources in the middle of the 'table' and taking his hand away so that other partners can propose ways to partner and leverage resources that also meet their needs. I found it inspiring. He's really brought the concept to scale.

  4. Hi all. I’m working to compile as many examples of successful joint use agreements for both the joint use locater on this website and the ENACT Local Policy Database on the Strategic Alliance website. We’ve found that sharing these examples and success stories are often invaluable at showing community leaders, elected officials, and school boards what is possible, as well as providing the technical details. I’m off to a good start but need your help! Does anyone know of joint use agreements that been successfully implemented? I’m particularly interested in identifying more examples from low income communities and communities of color. You can email me at, or post them here. It would be great to get a dialogue going here about the successes and challenges people have had with joint use. Thanks!
