The City of Moab is asking local residents to help imagine the future of city parks and recreation opportunities. Over the next several months, the city will host focus groups and public meetings to hear ideas and comments and listen to residents’ experiences with parks as well as recreation programs and facilities.
These steps are part of the effort to create the first citywide Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This plan will guide managing and enhancing city parks, playgrounds, and trails. It also informs future recreation programs, aquatics, and events.
“We’re excited to begin this much-needed master planning project, and we especially want to hear from our community members so that we can best understand changes and improvements our residents might like to see,” said Parks, Recreation and Trails Director Annie McVay. “Resident feedback will help ensure parks and recreational programs meet the needs of our growing and diverse community.”
The parks and recreation master plan project kicked off in early April with a community survey, which is now available online at surveymonkey.com/r/MoabCityParks. It can also can be accessed through the city website at moabcity.org/parks. The survey is available in English and Spanish. About 2,000 households in Moab also received the survey by mail. Those residents are encouraged to return the completed surveys, or to take the survey online if preferred.
Residents are also invited to provide input during a public open house on Wednesday, April 19 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center dance room, 111 East 100 North.
