The LA County Scuba website now states that Parks and Rec has taken over operational control of the Underwater Unit. Does anyone know why this happened and what it means in terms of programs like ADP and 3R?
I just looked on their website, and there were a few tweets - see LACounty Scuba (@lacountyscuba) on Twitter On April 22 it said the first 3R is less than 3 weeks away, then on April 30 it said Parks & Recreation was taking over. Nothing on the parks and recreation web site, though. The 3Rs I attended in the past were always pretty good
You are correct that the program has always been nominally part of LA Parks and Rec. Based on a recent post on diver.net, it appears that Parks and Rec outsourced the operation to a third party a few years ago who set up the LA County Scuba website, that relationship has ended and the operation has been taken back in house. This appears to be more a shift of administrative duties and website operation since the people actually conducting the programs are the same volunteer LA County Underwater Instructor as before.
