Palmdale Parks and Recreation Master Plan Survey Begins
PALMDALE – City residents are being encouraged to take a survey and tell us what they think about our parks and recreation facilities, programs, and services. The Palmdale Parks and Recreation Master Plan is an effort to plan improvements for the future of our parks and recreation amenities, programs, and services. Community input is an essential part of this process to understand better our residents’ needs and desires concerning parks and recreation. We will use your feedback to help guide decisions.
A random sampling of residents will receive a paper survey in the mail. These residents were selected to provide responses that will provide statistically valid results. If you receive a paper survey in the mail, we encourage you to provide feedback within 10 days. In addition, the Parks and Recreation Department invites all residents to give feedback and input through an open-link survey that will go live at the beginning of June.
The results of this survey will create a priority blueprint for places we can improve, methods for growing responsibly, and programs and recreational opportunities our community wants to see in Palmdale. Additionally, you can include what improvements you want to see and what you would like the City to prioritize.
This project is led by BerryDunn, with survey and data work done by RRC Associates. 4,500 households in the City of Palmdale have been mailed the paper survey with an option to complete the survey online, and responses from these residents will comprise the statistically valid sample. The open-link survey will allow all interested residents to provide feedback for the final analysis. Open-link results will be kept separate from the statistically valid responses, and these responses will nonetheless offer valuable input for the City.
You may call the City of Palmdale at 661/267-5611 with any questions about the survey and the process.
