Thursday January 17, 2013

South Burlington residents now have an important opportunity to express their opinions on our community recreation programs, facilities, and services through participation in a Community Needs Assessment. 

The Recreation & Parks Department and the Recreation & Leisure Arts Committee want your input about a number of recreation and park related issues.  You can assist us in being more responsive to the needs within our community and help us set a course of action for the next 5 to 10 years. 

The survey has been posted on Survey Monkey at the link listed below, and is also available by hard copy at the Recreation Office, or for download from our web site at The survey consists of 24 questions, and takes about 10 minutes to complete.  Your responses are confidential and all data will be tabulated and summarized in an executive summary and posted in The Other Paper, as well as the city web site.  The survey is now available online until Feb. 22.

Director of Recreation & Parks Tom Hubbard stated, “This tool will enable us to find out what we’re doing well, identify areas for growth and improvement, and pinpoint areas where we need to focus future planning efforts.  We understand that important recreation and park services can’t be delivered with anything less than passionate enthusiasm, critical attention to quality, and focusing on what is most important to people within the community.” 

Chair of the Recreation & Leisure Arts Committee, Glenn Sproul added, “This is a great opportunity for our community.  This will provide the foundation for a community development program for Recreation & Parks services designed to enhance the quality of life for all citizens.  For this reason, it is important that residents take part in the survey, and we whole-heartedly encourage your participation and welcome your honest feedback.”

Please take just a few moments to participate in this process and share your opinion with us, your willingness to take the survey is greatly appreciated!
