WAILUKU - The county Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is conducting an online survey to gather input on how to improve county parks facilities and recreational programs.
The 2013 Parks Survey has been created to obtain community feedback to develop the direction, priorities and purpose of future facilities, programs and operations.
The survey will gather information in the following categories: the effectiveness of existing and need for additional recreational programs, facilities and amenities; evaluation of the permitting process and current facility maintenance; current usage of existing facilities and programs; and desired priority of future DPR funding.
The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
"The outcome of the survey will enrich the future of our community and positively affect the lives of Maui County residents and visitors who utilize DPR facilities and programs on a daily basis," said Parks Deputy Director Brianne Savage.
"We want to hear from the public about their priorities, what they believe the department is doing well and what needs to be improved. We would also like to know what new or additional recreational programs and facilities people want to see in the future. This is everyone's chance to voice their opinion, and we are hoping to collect feedback from as many people as possible."
The survey is available online at www.mauicounty.gov/parksurvey. Hard copies can also be obtained from any district permitting office. Input will be gathered through mid-July.
