Survey results now available on www.napervilleparks.org
The Naperville Park District Board of Park Commissioners met on June 27 to hear and discuss the results of the most recent Community Survey.
Jeff Andreasen, Vice President of Richard Day Research, Inc. presented the findings of the telephone survey that his firm conducted on behalf of the Park District in May 2012. Professional telephone interviewers spoke with 502 heads of households randomly selected from all geographic areas of Naperville.
The news from the survey was very good for the Naperville Park District.
According to the executive summary, “Residents have an even higher opinion of the NPD and its parks, programs and facilities than they did three years ago. Naperville residents are almost universally aware of NPD (98% familiar), and hold the district in very high esteem (8.2 on a 0-10 scale, higher than any other public agency tested.)”
Once again, residents ranked trails as the most used and desired recreational amenity, followed closely by nature areas and picnic facilities.
“We’re very pleased with regard to the results of our most recent community survey,” said Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s always a good feeling to have the work you do validated by those you serve.”“Resident feedback always will be an essential element as we continue to move the District forward.”
