Vision 20/20 Project

Community Survey Results Will Help Shape the Future of the Park District

As part of its Vision 2020 comprehensive and strategic planning process, a community survey was administered last fall by the Elmhurst Park District to obtain feedback and help plan for future park and recreational opportunities. A total of 328 Elmhurst residents completed the survey, which provides a statistically significant overview for the community as a whole. In addition to the statistically-valid survey, the survey was available for the general public on the Vision 2020 project website.

2020 Vision – Focus on the Future

The Board of Park Commissioners has approved engaging The Lakota Group to conduct a community needs assessment to be completed in fall of 2016 and the development of a comprehensive and strategic plan with completion by late May 2017.  Using a qualifications based selection process, the Board interviewed two professional service firms with experience conducting surveys and facilitating Comprehensive and Strategic Plan processes.
