Portsmouth launches parks and recreation needs survey

Residents, business leaders invited to share visions in online survey

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — The town’s Parks and Recreation Department is encouraging residents and business leaders to participate in an online survey focusing on the quality of life in Portsmouth, the needs for parks and recreation services, programs and facilities, as well as views on a new community center to house community services and programs ranging from recreation to arts and culture.

“This survey is very important to provide information from our citizens on needs of our community,” said Town Administrator Richard Rainer, Jr. “It will provide important information that will help us decide where to apply our resources as we develop our town budget not only for the next year, but our five-year capital improvement plans.”

The 10- to 15-minute survey is open and will remain live and available for input until Nov. 15, 2019. 

There are two ways to take the survey:

• Online: Visit portsmouthri.questionpro.com or find the survey link at www.portsmouthri.com.

• Paper version: Stop into Town Hall, The Portsmouth Free Public Library, the senior center or the Clements’ Marketplace reception desk for your copy.  Or, call the Portsmouth town clerk at 401/683-2101 to receive a copy by mail.  

The results of the survey will guide town leaders as they plan to meet community needs over the years ahead. Results will be presented to the Town Council at its Dec. 9 meeting and made available to the public. 

Results will also be available on the town’s website at www.portsmouthri.com. Residents or business leaders who would like background information before completing the survey should also visit that website.

The survey is being conducted by The Center for Research & Public Policy, Inc. of Chester, Vt., a consulting firm specializing in market and social research and public opinion polling.
