[ARCHIVED] City seeks recreation, parks input in new survey

Post Park

Survey is part of Recreation Department master plan process.

Are you interested in fishing, baseball, or nature walks? Have you participated in any of these activities? These are some of the questions the city is asking the community in a survey about parks and recreation needs.


The survey is part of the city Recreation Department’s ongoing master plan process. This will help the department develop a strategic guide to provide recreation programs and services that improve the physical health and well-being of the Battle Creek community.


The plan involves an inventory of related programs and services; consideration of the structure of the department’s staff, budget, and collaborations in the community; and an action plan for the next five years.


Gathering public input is part of any master planning process, and recreation staff have attended Neighborhood Planning Council meetings this fall. A draft plan will be released this winter, with time for public review, and the department will hold open houses to discuss the draft with the community.


The survey is now available on the city’s website, battlecreekmi.gov. Scroll down to the City Spotlight section at the bottom of the home page. Contact the Recreation Department with questions at 269-966-3431. McKenna Associates Inc., of Northville, is the city’s consultant for the master plan project.


Thank you for your input and participation!
