Winchester Parks & Recreation Needs Assessment
A random sampling of 3000 Winchester residents will receive a mailed questionnaire. This questionnaire can be completed manually and mailed back to the Needs Assessment consultants GreenPlay or can be downloaded on-line and returned by mail to Winchester Parks and Recreation. Returned Survey Questionnaires will be part of statistically valid study. In addition to the statistically valid study via survey results, Winchestrians can also complete the same questionnaire that will not be part of the statistically valid study but whose data will be considered in final recommendations from the consulting firm. These Survey Questionnaires can be picked up at the War Memorial Building in Jim Barnett Park and Rouss City Hall beginning July 10, 2015. Finally, WPRD's Mind Mixer website called "Play Your Heart Out Winchester", provides another vehicle for community engagement and will be used as an online tool to generate new ideas and feedback from citizens using this interactive and accessible new platform.
Feedback from the engagement website, the questionnaire returns and the statistically valid study will be used by City staff, GreenPlay and City Council to shape parks and recreation in the coming years in our community, first though the recommendation of this Needs Assessment and finally the 5 year Master Plan.
