Jackson residents have an opportunity to give feedback on the future of the City’s parks system. The City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of revising its master plan. To make sure resident input is included in the plan, the City has launched a Parks and Recreation Survey.
The short survey, which is available in paper and digital formats, officially launched on Wednesday, Sept. 6 and will be open through Sunday, Oct. 8. The 14-question survey asks residents about their park experiences, program participation, and what kind of offerings they’d like to see in the future. After the survey closes in Oct., responses will be reviewed by City staff and the Parks and Recreation Commission for use in the new Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Once completed, the master plan will be used as a guide for improvements to the parks system over the next five years.
Parks and Recreation Director Kelli Hoover says feedback from residents is important to improving the parks system. “Past surveys were instrumental in our department creating a disc golf course and expanding pedestrian trails, so this information really is valued by the City,” Hoover said. “We welcome the feedback and appreciate the support from residents.”
The digital Parks and Recreation Survey is available on the City website, cityofjackson.org. Paper copies of the survey can be found at the Parks and Recreation Department, 5th floor of City Hall, 161. W. Michigan Ave.
