Strategic Parks & Open Space Plan The County needs your input

You’re invited!

 

The County of Hunterdon has engaged the services of Maser Consulting to help conduct a Strategic Parks and Open Space Plan.  Maser will be assisted by GreenPlay LLC, a nationally renowned park and recreation consulting firm. The intent of this comprehensive plan is to identify our community’s park and recreation needs so we can proactively plan for the future.  In order to identify these needs, we are asking for your help.

 

As a component of the planning process, the consultant team is conducting a series of focus groups meetings with community leaders, residents, and park users.  Because we value your opinion, we invite you to participate in one of these focus groups.  The meetings will consist of approximately 10 – 20 participants and may last up to 90 minutes.  The consultants will ask participants a variety of questions to assess customer satisfaction, parks, recreation and open space needs of the community, and issues that should be addressed in the strategic plan.  With a focus group, there are never wrong answers, so everybody is encouraged to be open and freely express their thoughts.

 

The meetings will take place on May 2nd, 3rd, and 4thin Building #1 at the Route 12 County Complex.  To accommodate your busy schedule, a variety of meeting times are available on a first come first serve basis.
