Improve Joplin parks and recreation; take survey l-onstot
Updated: 2014-05-31 16:32:21
The City of Joplin Parks and Recreation Department is conducting a community interest and attitude survey. The results of the survey will be used to develop the parks and recreation Department's Master Plan and Strategic Action Plan to better serve the Joplin community’s interests. Survey results will also help determine the allocation of department assets, budget priorities, and identify possible funding opportunities.

Questions on the survey ask citizens about their recent use of parks' facilities, their support of improvements and additions of facilities, and their preference of activities to pursue in the future. The survey was designed to obtain statistically valid results from households throughout the city of Joplin. The survey will continue through June. The goal of the department is to receive at least 600 completed surveys which provide a sample size that achieves a valid survey.

“It is important for our department to establish priorities for future improvements and development of parks and recreation facilities, programs and services,” said Chris Cotten, department director. “With this approach, we can better address environmental sustainability of our parks that will promote healthy lifestyles and community growth while obtaining an awareness of funding needs and resources. Our citizens’ input and participation is essential to achieve these goals that focus on their interests.”

Citizens wanting to take the survey may find it here.

The department will compile and review the data with the results being shared with city Administration, parks and recreation advisory board, Joplin City Council and citizens upon the analysis completion. The timing at which this is completed is dependent on how quickly we receive completed surveys to achieve a statistically valid survey. For more information, contact the the Joplin Parks and Recreation office at (417) 624-6937.
