BEMIDJI — The city of Bemidji Parks and Recreation Department is asking the community to share their ideas about the future of the city’s parks and trails system.

Participants are encouraged to explore and respond to up to three survey components: a general community survey, an interactive mapping tool and a survey specifically about a Cameron Park project.

The surveys can be accessed online at jfc.mysocialpinpoint.com/bemidji-parks-and-rec .

Paper copies of the surveys can also be filled out at City Hall or the Tourist Information Center.

Survey participants will be asked about their use of the system and what they hope to see in the future.

The Parks and Recreation Commission is tasked with taking the results of the survey and crafting a plan for the system that is inclusive of all members of the community. A final plan document is expected sometime this summer, a release said.

The department’s Strategic System Plan was last updated in 2011. Since then, the Parks and Recreation Commission has worked with the department toward the completion of several facility improvements and launching a very successful recreation program.

Updating the plan is vital to meeting the needs of the growing community. The community-wide survey will be the first opportunity for the community to share their opinions and thoughts, the release said.

The survey will be available through April 10. Any questions can be directed to the Parks and Recreation Department at (218) 333-1850 or parks.recreation@ci.bemidji.mn.us .
