Provide input on the future of the city of Aurora

Residents are encouraged to take survey on parks, recreation and open space

AURORA, Colo. –The city of Aurora has commissioned a Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan Survey as part of an effort to update the existing parks and recreation plans. Community input is an important part of this process and helps the city to best tailor the plan to reflect the community’s desires and needs.

A total of 5,000 randomly-sampled households in the city of Aurora are receiving a paper survey, and responses from these residents will comprise the statistically-valid sample. Surveys will be in mailboxes by Nov. 2 and must be completed by Nov. 16. There are options for Spanish-speaking households.

In addition, the city invites all residents to provide feedback and input through an openlink survey that will go live Nov. 16 at PROSPlan.org/Open. The openlink survey will give all residents an opportunity to provide feedback, and their responses will be included in the final report. While the input provided via the openlink survey will be kept separate from the statistically-valid responses, that input will, nonetheless, provide valuable feedback for the city of Aurora.

The results of this survey will provide critical information in determining community values, satisfaction levels, needs and priorities and demographics for the city’s long-term planning efforts. Questions will be asked about what types of programs, facilities, and services residents want in their parks system and where priorities should be placed.

This project is led by GreenPlay, LLC, with survey and data work done by RRC Associates.
