COMMUNITY SURVEY THE RESULTS ARE IN!

The Oswegoland Park District worked with the Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies Division of Outreach, Engagement and Regional Development to conduct a community survey in conjunction with the updating of the District’s Strategic Plan.

A random sample of 2,000 households within the Oswegoland Park District service area was selected to receive the survey. The data received by respondents was weighted on age, gender, and race/ethnicity to ensure that respondents to the survey are representative of the population of all adults in the Oswegoland Park District service area and that the findings can be generalized to the total adult population.

Survey results indicate the Oswegoland community values the parks, programs, and services provided, and the respondents are satisfied with the Park District.
