Novi Civic Center Sensory Inclusion Certified

Guests with sensory needs who visit the Novi Civic Center for a program or event can now be assured their experience will be a positive one. Recently, the Novi Civic Center received Sensory Inclusion Certification from KultureCity, which means staff has been trained to recognize guests with sensory needs and how to handle a sensory overload situation.

Sensory bags, equipped with noise cancelling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads also are available to guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. Prior to attending an event, families can download the free KultureCity app to learn what sensory features are available and where they can access them.

CAPRACAPRA Awards

In October 2016, the City of Novi’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) Department earned Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) accreditation through the National Recreation and Park Association. The accreditation placed Novi PRCS as one of four accredited agencies in Michigan and one of 155 in the U.S. out of about 10,000 possible. CAPRA accreditation is the only national accreditation for park and recreation agencies and is a measure of an agency’s quality of operations, management and customer service. Achieving accreditation is a multi-year process which includes demonstrated compliance in the areas of planning; administration; human resources; financial management; facility and land use; public safety, risk management; and research and evaluation.Logo - CAPRA Accredited
