City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation Survey

The City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation Survey was a mixed mode mail and web-based survey that focused on collecting the community attitudes and interests of residents living in Fairfax City, Virginia.  The survey was developed to aid in the preparation of a strategic plan for the future development, redevelopment, and enhancement of the City's parks system, open space, trails, recreational facilities, recreation and cultural activities, events and services within the community.  The City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation Department wanted to take a resident-driven approach to making decisions that would enrich the future of the community and positively affect the lives of residents. A total of 612 Fairfax City residents participated in this survey, and a final report was submitted to the Fairfax City Council, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and Parks and Recreation Department to inform the Strategic Plan for the future of the community's parks and recreational offerings.
