Questionnaire mailed to all Milton households by next week

MILTON, GA., March 11, 2010 - The City of Milton asks residents keep an eye on their mailboxes next week, because a vital planning document is on its way.

Called the Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment Survey, this simple and confidential 5-minute questionnaire is an extremely important look into what residents want from the city's burgeoning Parks and Recreation Department. This is the first time such information will be gathered for Milton, and the completeness and quality of responses will determine the direction for an issue many in Milton, including City Council, consider among their biggest concerns.

In short, the responses from this survey will lead directly to long-range planning and developing funding for those projects. It is being mailed to every residence in the city, so everyone will have an opportunity to have their voice heard.

"I cannot stress enough the importance of this survey," said Cyndee Bonacci, Milton's Parks and Recreation director. "It will be the absolute bedrock for everything the Milton Parks and Recreation Department will become - the types of programs it offers, the styles of parks it runs."

The survey must be returned to the City of Milton no later than April 12, as explained in the packet being mailed out. Once residents have completed the survey and mailed it back in the pre-addressed, stamped envelope, the results will be sent to a third-party research firm to ensure complete confidentiality.

"Your responses will lead to the creation of a long-range comprehensive plan that will meet the needs of you, your children and generations to come," said Mayor Joe Lockwood. "We appreciate your support of Milton and this important parks and recreation research initiative. Thank you for taking your time to provide input."

Incorporated on December 1, 2006, the City of Milton is a distinctive community that embraces small-town life and heritage while preserving and enhancing the city's rural character. The City of Milton is committed to maintaining the unique quality of life for its constituents while efficiently delivering essential services to residents and businesses in an interactive community environment.

Is this in any way associated with the Census Bureau Survey?
