City Council receives We Heart Memorial Park survey results

The Susanville City Council received the community survey results for its Statewide Parks Grant We Heart Memorial Park project, and the board will discusses the results and provide input at a later meeting.

“We got 58 community members to provide input and this is input we will be using towards the Memorial Park Statewide Park Grant,” said City Administrator/ Chief of Police Kevin Jones during the Wednesday, Dec. 16 meeting. “It was interesting, the different results.”

“City of Susanville staff posted a survey to gather public input on features and facilities desired to be included in the Statewide Parks Program We Heart Memorial Park Round 4 grant application. A survey flyer was handed out to the public at the city of Susanville Safe and Sane Halloween in the Park event, advertised on social media, included in the city newsletter and posted on the city of Susanville’s website. The survey was live for four weeks and 58 community members completed the survey. The results of the survey will be included in the Round 4 application’s community input and these results will provide guidance fulfilling the community’s desires and ideas for placement and feature selections,” read the item summary.

The item was information only, and Jones said the matter will be coming back before the council for at least two council meetings to go over responses and provide input before the application is submitted to the Statewide Parks Program.

During the meeting, some attendees did speak in favor of a new pump track at Memorial Park, with new obstacles to replace the outdated features and expansion to allow for more variety of users.
