Shape the Future of the Park and Rec. Dept.

The public is encouraged to attend a community meeting to give input on future Park and Recreation Department services. Meetings will be held from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Thurs. Oct. 7, Tues. Oct. 11, and Thurs. Oct. 14. Meeting locations are listed below. Childcare will be provided.

The meetings will provide background information on each of the recreation facilities. Participants will also be asked to share their thoughts and ideas about which services Park and Rec. should offer during round table discussions. They will be asked for feedback on a variety of topics including classes, building usage, fees, hours of operation and new services. Wichita State University, Center for Urban Studies staff will facilitate the discussions.

“It’s very important residents attend these meetings so we can find out which services are important to them,” said Doug Kupper, Director of Park and Recreation.” Their feedback will help us develop a plan to better serve them through our neighborhood recreation centers.”

Due to the current economic situation of the City Of Wichita, it has been determined that the Department of Park and Recreation will undergo extensive restructuring.
