Zionsville residents now have access to the park dept.’s next five-year master plan survey. The online survey includes specific questions about current facilities and offers the public an opportunity to give comments about what they’d like to see in the future.
A direct link to the survey can be found at http://tinyurl.com/zparks.
The Zionsville Parks and Recreation Dept.’s last five-year plan was completed in 2008. The 2013-2018 Master Plan will provide a framework for current and future efforts. The plan also serves as a method of gathering public input and, in turn, informing decision makers and the public of the relative importance the community places upon parks facilities and recreational programming.
Perhaps nearly as important, the plan will help the park board meet Dept. of Natural Resources standards, which allows it to qualify for future DNR grants like the current $200,000 Land & Water Conservation Fund grant for the construction of the new Heritage Trail Park at 875 E. and 400 S.
In addition to the survey, a public input meeting will be scheduled further along in the process to keep the public updated on the plan’s progress. Call 733-2273 for additional information.
