From Parks:
Below is a link to the newly posted Strategic Planning survey and Park Use and Interest Survey. This survey opportunity is provided to ensure everyone has a voice – especially if they can’t attend one of our upcoming public forums. We would appreciate it if you could help us spread the word that these surveys are available on our website.
