The goal of this survey is to further understand the current and future needs and demand for outdoor youth sports facilities in the City of Paola. We want to understand what opportunities kids have to play and at what level. We also want to know what other facilities and travel sports take place in and around the community. Since the ½-cent sales tax initiative starting in October 2021 has been identified for pool maintenance and enhancement, parks and ballfield improvements, and streets, we want to make sure projects benefit the community in the best possible manner. Your answers below will help to determine that, and we thank you for your responses.
