2017 Community Survey Overview & Results
Approximately every 5-8 years the Park District completes a valid comprehensive assessment process of park and recreation services by conducting a statistically valid satisfaction/needs assessment survey. The previous community survey was completed in 2009. The results of the 2017 Community Survey provide valuable resident feedback and information that is used in part to help guide the Board and Staff in making strategic decisions in determining goals for the District that will address documented park and recreational needs in order to further improve the quality of life for Woodridge residents. These goals, strategies and initiatives will be incorporated into the District’s new Five Year 2018-2012 Strategic Master Plan to be approved 2018.
The community survey was conducted by Ron Vine & Associates with the assistance of RRC Associates a recognized leader in consumer intelligence and strategic market research for the tourism and recreation industries. Collaboration with resident, staff, and Park Board focus groups were completed in September 2017 to assist in developing questions for the survey. The survey questionnaire was completed and distributed by means of a random sampling equally distributed by mail to 5,500 Woodridge households throughout the community in November 2017.
2009 Needs Assessment Overview & Results
Last fall, the Woodridge Park District launched a comprehensive park and recreation needs assessment process. With the help of Leisure Vision, a recreational assessment consultant, the park district began the assessment process in September by facilitating public focus groups and community leader stakeholder interviews. These one-on-one and small group interviews helped the park district identify needs within the community to develop a comprehensive and interest recreation survey.
The needs assessment survey addressed household resident attitudes and opinions for a wide variety of issues impacting the successful delivery of parks and recreation services, such as usage and satisfaction with current parks, open space and facilities, customer service, marketing information; current activities and programming participation, etc. The survey was distributed by means of a random sampling equally distributed by mail throughout the community.
The Board of Park Commissioners will use the information from the focus groups, stakeholder interviews and needs assessment survey in developing long-range planning strategies and initiatives. These strategies and initiatives will be incorporated into the new 2010-2014 Comprehensive Financial and Capital Development Plan to be approved in fall 2010.
