The Parks and Recreation Commission will be conducting a community parks and recreation needs assessment survey in the Fall of 2010. The purpose of the survey will be to gather input from residents about perceptions and opinions regarding current and future needs related to existing and future parks/trails, and recreation programs. In addition, the survey will be an update to a previous needs assessment conducted in 1998 and may provide information about changing perceptions and trends in the community. The easy to understand and complete paper-and-pencil survey will consist primarily of close-ended questions and is scheduled to be mailed to a random sample of 3,000 City of Brookfield households in mid-September. If your household receives the survey, please take time to complete and return it. We value your input.
