Identification Of Need For Recreation Services And Facilities
The committee developed three (3) survey instruments to assist in identifying parks and recreation needs in the community. Survey Instrument #1 was randomly distributed to Middle School-aged students in the community. Survey Instrument #2 was randomly distributed to High School-aged students in the community. Finally, Survey Instrument #3 was randomly distributed to adults in the community. Each instrument provided residents with the opportunity to respond to specific recreation and park opportunities, as well as an opportunity to respond with their own ideas for additional opportunities.
The committee also referred to a 2004 survey that was developed by the Recreation Commission and completed by 920 Warren Township residents. The survey results reported a community interest in a broad range of activities and facilities and provided the current committee with a very good tool in developing priorities.
The Parks and Recreation Master Plan Committee was developed by appointing members of the community with various professional backgrounds and recreation/park interests. This dynamic proved invaluable as the committee began to assemble information and outline directives for the plan. Committee backgrounds included scholastic athlete, school administrator, senior citizen club member, youth sports administrator, recreation trails chairperson and members of the Recreation Commission. The review of completed surveys, coupled with the aforementioned committee backgrounds, created recommendations for action.
Recommendations For Action
The committee addressed this section of the master plan with the idea that recommendations should be categorized into three sections. A #1 designation identified a recommendation as an IMMEDIATE priority. A #2 designation identified a recommendation as a SECONDARY priority. A #3 designation identified a recommendation as a FUTURE priority. Table 3 outlines the recommendations for action based upon this model.
