The City of Lenoir Parks and Recreation Department is seeking community input through a brief survey.
The survey is online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LenoirRecSurvey.
The survey asks questions such as "How far do you live from a park?", "What recreational activities do you participate in frequently?", and "How would you rank the City's current recreation facilities, parks, and programs?"
In addition to the online survey, Parks & Recreation Staff are holding a public input session from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday, April 4, 2022, at the Lenoir Aquatic & Fitness Center (LAFC). The public can drop by any time during the session and share their thoughts about the City's recreation programs. LAFC is located at 1031 Jim Barger Dr NE.
"Public input will help us plan future improvements and programming," Parks & Recreation Director Kenny Story s
aid. "It will also help as we seek funding opportunities through the North Carolina Parks & Recreation Trust Fund Grant program."
