Current Needs Satisfaction


Respondents were asked about MATCH WITH CURRENT NEEDS:

“Currently, how well are your household’s needs being meet by the EXISTING following recreation and park amenities?”

SCALE: -5 Nowhere near meeting needs; 0 = About right; +5 More than enough amenities.

The first chart offers the results in a larger summary grouping. The second chart (scroll down) shows the full data by each point on the scale.

Key things to note:

  • Generally the data skews to either being about right, or not quite meeting existing needs.
  • The responses are generally consistent across the various categories of recreation and park amenities, but with more of a deficit in Community Events, Leisure Parks and Organized recreational programs and facilities.
  • Trails and sidewalks offer the best match with current needs.
