Survey a chance to give input on future of Sarasota County's parks and preserves

SARASOTA COUNTY – Residents still have a chance to have their say about the future of parks, preserves and recreation services in Sarasota County over the next five, 10 and 20 years.

In addition to public workshops, focus groups and citizen interviews, Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources is conducting a Community Interest and Opinion Survey to better understand our residents' priorities for parks, beach areas, trails, preserves, sports and recreation facilities, programs and services within the community.

The survey is part of a larger effort to develop a Master Plan that will provide a framework for enhancing the parks system, and community input is crucial.

The survey can be taken online at It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

"The time you invest in completing this survey will aid us in taking a resident-driven approach to making decisions that will enrich the future of our community and positively affect the lives of its residents" said Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Director Carolyn Brown.
