The statement in quotes is fine.

I believe that we are already asking that the acceptance of 
recommendations include a projected time-frame for implementation. 
This will take into account staff availability. It will also factor 
in that some Recs are implemented by completely different staff from 
others. The community will have plenty of opportunity to comment 
about whether the projected implementation meets their needs and expectations.
