2500 Shoreline residents being surveyed on City parks

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

ETC Institute has mailed out the parks community survey to approximately 2,500 Shoreline residents this week.

Information from the survey will be used to help kick-off the update to the City’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan.

The mailing includes a postage paid return envelope. People receiving the survey are also provided instructions on how take it online if they so choose.

In about three weeks the consultants will begin making follow-up calls to achieve the desired response rate of at least 500 random surveys.

Beware the "trick questions" - numbers 13 and on... Shoreline has many of these amenities already at the Shoreline Center. If redeveloping Shoreline Center means towers of apodments on top, displacement or long, but temporary loss of the senior center and other services, sale and loss of the public asset of the School District property that will surely be needed at some point down the road if the growth that City Hall keeps fearmongering to their adoring public comes to fruition, especially with an early learning program already being displaced.

How about putting in some basketball courts here on the west side? Our parks are designed for toddlers. Our teens and adults need recreation too.

I hope there will be plenty of opportunity for all citizens to have input on the Parks, Open Space and Recreation Plan. 500 surveys for a city of over 53,000 people is not much of a cross-section. Especially when you consider the possibility of several respondents not being park users. Could Shoreline Area News please continue to follow the process and be sure to let the general public know how they might participate. As always, thank you for all the good work you do on covering local news.
