CITY OF STATESVILLE ROUTE 2 RECREATION SURVEY

The City of Statesville Recreation and Parks Department is preparing for development of a new Comprehensive Recreation and Parks Master Plan - your Route 2 Recreation. Through research and public input, this plan will assess the current and future level of service of the parks system and recreation needs of the City of Statesville. The purpose of this project will be to develop a community-supported plan that directly relates to the goal of the Recreation and Parks Department and provides guidance to effectively prioritize, fund, develop, and manage parks, recreation facilities, open space, trails, and recreation programs for years to come.

A major component of this process is to conduct a community-wide needs assessment survey. Your participation is crucial in determining the future direction and goals of our community's recreation and parks. Even if you do not currently participate in any recreation programs or utilize the park system in any way, your survey answers will still be important.

We appreciate your time and efforts to make the City of Statesville a great place to live, work and play. 

Sincerely,
City of Statesville Recreation and Parks Department
