Dunwoody wants residents to weigh in on parks

Dunwoody officials want residents to provide feedback and input they say will help guide the future of the city’s parks and recreation facilities and services.

The open online survey, accessible at www.dunwoodysurvey.org/open, is part of the city’s current Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update efforts and will provide critical information in determining community values, satisfaction levels, needs and priorities for the city’s long-term planning efforts. The survey will be available for Dunwoody residents to complete over the next two weeks.

The purpose of the survey is to retrieve vital resident opinions about what types of programs, facilities, and services residents want to see in their parks and recreation facilities and where priorities should be placed.  Additional questions will assess current levels of usage, and other specific community needs.

“Community input is an essential part of this process and helps the city to best tailor the plan to reflect the community’s desires and needs,” Brent Walker, director of Dunwoody Parks and Recreation, said in a news release.

A random sampling of residents received an identical mailed survey and these responses will provide statistically valid results for the Dunwoody community.  The city and survey analysis team requests residents who received a paper survey invitation in the mail, to please take the time to send back responses.

The newly launched open online survey is in addition to the mailed survey and will provide a separate set of survey polling results which will be analyzed and compared along with the mailed survey responses to appropriately guide the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update efforts for the City of Dunwoody.
