City of Arcadia Recreation and Parks Master Plan Resident Survey Now On-line!
City of Arcadia Recreation and Community Services Department seeks resident input on park facilities and recreation program as part of its community outreach effort for a new recreation and parks master plan. The intent of the master plan is to develop a tool which can provide direction and planning for an achievable, fiscally responsible and environmentally sustainable recreation and parks system in Arcadia. The final document will be used to direct future park and facility improvements as well as meet future trends and community needs for Arcadia’s recreation and leisure services programs and activities over the next 20 years.
One of the ways the city is assessing community needs, suggestions, and priorities is through a community survey. The survey is available both online and in paper form. Residents can pick up the paper survey form at the Arcadia Community Center Recreation Office or go online to complete and submit the survey at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/ArcadiaParksRecNeeds.
You can also access the survey link through the city’s web site at www.ci.arcadia.ca.us by clicking on Recreation & Community Services under the “City Departments” heading on the homepage. Residents can also check the master plan status and get information on how to submit ideas and comments. The survey will be available throughout the summer but must be completed and submitted by Friday September 25, 2015. The city is also planning a “Community Workshop” that will be open to all residents who would like to give suggestions about needed park improvements or future recreation programs and facilities. The public workshop is scheduled for September 22, 2015 and will be held 6 to 8pm in Police Department’s Community Room. For more information call the Recreation and Community Services Department at 626-574-5113.
