Survey under way for new parks, recreation plan for Pleasanton

Outside firm making random calls to solicit public views

A survey group commissioned by the city of Pleasanton has started a telephone survey of residents to seek input on a new comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Susan Andrade-Wax, the city's director of Parks and Community Services, said the new plan "is intended to be a significant planning tool to help the city plan for the changing scope of recreational activities."

"It will summarize themes, trends and community priorities, assess available resources, review existing and anticipated demographic conditions and provide strategies for parks, recreation programs and open space needs," she said.

The random telephone survey is being conducted by Network Ltd., a consumer research firm.

"The city is extremely interested in the community's opinions for future planning of park and recreational facilities as well as a variety of programs and services over the next 15 years," Andrade-Wax said. "We hope that residents will assist by answering the brief survey."
