Laguna Vista conducting parks survey

April 14, 2019

LAGUNA VISTA — Butterfly gardens, a dog park, tennis courts — which parks facilities would you like to see added?

Laguna Vista city officials are conducting a Parks Master Plan survey to update its current plan and are seeking more input from the public.

The survey is in multiple choice format and takes less than three minutes to complete, either on the town’s website or in-person at the town’s City Hall at 122 Fernandez Street.

The last day to complete the survey is May 31.

According to City Manager Rolando Vela, public participation is “extremely important” for city officials to understand the needs and wants of the community.

As of Friday, more than 151 people had completed the survey online and more than 35 had submitted a hard copy of the survey, according to Vela.

“We’re strongly encouraging everyone to complete this survey,” Vela said. “We need input to update the Parks Master Plan.”

Updating the plan will enable the town to apply for grants that can help make improvements to existing parks and to possibly build new ones, Vela said.
