City of Beacon launches Community Facility and Program Survey.
Please help the City of Beacon plan the future of its community facilities and programs. This survey is open to all users of Beacon’s community facilities and programs. It is our hope to determine the need for a centrally located “Community Center” to assist in serving the current and future needs for our community.
The City of Beacon is currently developing a Community Facility and Program Report. The Report will include an inventory of existing recreational facilities and programs and a community needs assessment to identify and evaluate opportunities to improve and build upon existing programs and facilities. Based on the findings of the Inventory and Assessment, the City shall develop a final report outlining alternatives and prioritized recommendations for the potential provision of additional facilities, programs, and services for the next ten (10) years.

Many great entities provide facilities and programs for the residents of the City of Beacon. They include state and county agencies, local non-profits, as well faith based and civic organizations, to name a few. Now you have a little background it’s time to…….
2. TAKE THE SURVEY!!!! The complete survey should take you about 20 minutes to complete. Outreach and participation are key to having a better understanding of what or community uses and what our community seeks for the future.
3. Spread the word! We would very much appreciate your help in getting the community to participate. Consider sending this to your email list. Share our social media posts. Add a personal note as to how this could help your organization, the park you love, or programs you utilize.
In the coming weeks we will be adding materials and outreach to help spread the word. With your help and our community’s input we will make this a successful survey to help steer community facilities and programs for the future here in Beacon.
