Millville OSRP Survey 2018 Overview

Dear Residents,

Please help the Town of Millville develop its very first Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) by participating in this important survey.

An Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) will allow Millville to maintain and enhance open spaces that together make up so much of our community's character and protect the Town's "green infrastructure" (i.e. water supply, land, working farms and forests, wildlife habitats, parks, recreation areas, trails, and greenways).
An approved OSRP is necessary to qualify for State funding for acquisition and protection of open space lands and recreation facilities. Open Space in this survey is defined as "public and privately-owned undeveloped lands which are important for a variety of reasons, including passive recreation, conservation, water resource protection, agriculture, forestry, or simply because of their scenic qualities and their contribution to the overall character of the Town."
While some of you may have already complete a similar, open-ended survey that was included in your December 2017 tax bill, the following survey gives residents an opportunity to provide additional detail to your ideas and concerns regarding the town's open space and recreation facilities
Please take a few minutes to answer this 10-question survey

Surveys must be completed by Friday March 23, 2018

Responses will be kept anonymous and not attributed to individuals. The last page includes an optional contact form if you would like to stay connected to the project. 

Hardcopy surveys are also available. You may choose to complete this online survey here or pick-up/drop-off a completed copy at one of the following locations:
  • Town Hall
  • Senior Center
  • Millville Public Library

A public forum will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 review the project, share results from both surveys, and gather community feedback. We hope you will join us and we thank you for your help.
