A public survey launching this week marks the next step in the public input process to determine the location, amenities, and feasibility of a new Community Center in Grand Junction. A randomly selected sample of Grand Junction residents received postcards inviting participation in a quantitative survey using an assigned password. Those selected are asked to complete the 10-minute survey about the site location, amenities, community programming, and funding options for a potential new Community Center.
“It is really important that each household that received a postcard please participate in the survey,” said Kimberly Langston, a volunteer with People for Local Activities and Community Enrichment (PLACE). PLACE, in partnership with the Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department, is currently sponsoring a feasibility study to assess the community’s needs and wants in the development of a potential Community Center. “Every voice in our community is so valuable to help us understand the pulse of Grand Junction as we finalize our research and prepare to make recommendations to City Council this summer.”
The quantitative survey is only open for a limited time, so anyone who received a postcard is encouraged to complete the survey as soon as possible. A general community survey will also be available to test the same concepts but allow all interested citizens to participate. This survey can be found at gjsurvey.org/2018.
