Naperville Park District Community Survey, now online, seeks input through June 12


Above / Naperville is blessed with nearly 140 parks and indoor facilities where nature, wildlife, sports and other activities can be experienced every day. From now through June 12, 2017, residents are invited to participate in Naperville Park District Community Survey Online.

The Naperville Park District’s 2017 Community Interest and Opinion Survey is available online now (May 22) through June 12, 2017, at http://www.arisurvey.com/s3/NPD .

Residents are invited to complete the survey, adding their input for the Park Board and staff to consider when discussing the future direction of the District and creating a new strategic plan later this year.

Earlier this spring, the District’s consultant, aQity Research and Insights, administered this survey to randomly selected households comprising a statistically representative sample of the entire community. Results of the aQity study will be analyzed and presented in a report this summer. Additional input from the wider online survey now open to everyone will be reviewed along with the statistically valid survey.

The survey includes questions about usage of parks, facilities and programs, residents’ needs and wants for recreation and their opinion about the overall quality of the Park District. The Park District values residents’ ideas and opinions and relies on community input to guide its strategic plan and master plan. The community interest and opinion survey is conducted every 3-5 years.

The public online version offers an opportunity for everyone to communicate their thoughts to the Park District.

Online surveys, polls & petitions welcome everyone to participate

Weather permitting, Centennial Beach opens Memorial Day weekend.

Editor’s Note / Since October 2016, local residents have been asked to take community interest surveys, providing feedback for local taxing bodies including the School District 203, the City of Naperville, and now the Naperville Park District.

Sometimes during the recent political campaign, Positively Naperville orchestrated “flash” straw polls to check what’s on readers’ minds.

During April 2017, the Naperville Riverwalk, the City’s natural treasure in the heart of downtown, also conducted an independent survey. The Riverwalk is funded in part by the City of Naperville and Naperville Park District along with private funds for enhancements.

Since May 13, 2017, other folks have been checking interest to save the old Nichols Library now that proposed plans have been made available for a new development along Washington Street.

These days, easy-to-tally online polls and surveys are conducted, mostly to determine resident satisfaction.

Some readers have contacted PN who long for the days to fill out written surveys and to sign written petitions.

All input is appreciated. Thanks for paying attention and providing feedback whenever opportunities present themselves.
