LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department is looking to make improvements but needs help from the community in order to do so. If you have any suggestions on what could be updated, now is the time to share your input.
The department is in the process of renewing its five-year master plan. It's renewed with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and keeps them eligible for grants. The department is offering a survey for you to share your thoughts.
Parks and Recreation Department Director of Operations Jon Miner said, "It's an opportunity for our citizens and patrons to provide their feedback about the parks department, how they currently use parks, what they would like to see going forward in the future."
The survey will be available now until the end of the month and it takes about three minutes to complete.
"Sometimes we think we know what the community needs and what the community wants, but it's really valuable to have that input back from them about our services and our parks," Miner said.
The department is also hosting a public input meeting Monday, Aug. 20 at 6 p.m. It's being held at the Rush Pavilion at Columbian Park.
