EAST LANSING, Mich. – East Lansing community members are invited to share input that will assist the City of East Lansing in updating its Five-Year Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Greenways Plan.
The updated plan will be adopted in 2020 and will serve as an important document that will help guide the future direction of the City’s parks and recreation system for five years and beyond. The current, 2015 plan can be viewed here: https://www.cityofeastlansing.com/DocumentCenter/View/2678/2015-Park-Recreation-Open-Space-and-Greenways-Plan-PDF?bidId.
There are two ways for community members to share their input on the plan update:
- An online survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EastLansingPR. This survey should take an average of 10-12 minutes to complete and the deadline to complete the survey has been extended to Monday, Feb. 11. Paper copies of the survey are also available at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road; the East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbot Road; and East Lansing City Hall, 410 Abbot Road.
- Two public input meetings have been scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7 and Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road. All community members are welcome to attend.
“We hope community members will take advantage of the opportunities available to share their input with us as we work to update this important document,” said East Lansing Parks, Recreation & Art Director Tim McCaffrey. “Community participation in this process is extremely important to us and will help us in developing an updated plan that is supported by the community members we serve.”
