The city of Battle Creek is turning to the public to get feedback related to parks and recreation in the community. An online survey has been posted as part of the city Recreation Department’s ongoing master plan process. It is designed to help the department develop a strategic guide to provide recreation programs and services that improve the physical health and well-being of the Battle Creek community.

The plan involves an inventory of related programs and services; consideration of the structure of the department’s staff, budget, and collaborations in the community; and an action plan for the next five years. McKenna Associates Inc., of Northville, is the city’s consultant for the master plan project.

Gathering public input is part of any master planning process, and recreation staff have attended Neighborhood Planning Council meetings this fall. A draft plan will be released this winter, with time for public review, and the department will hold open houses to discuss the draft with the community. - Battle Creek Recreation Director Duska Brumm
