Amherst residents are being asked for their input on an update this year of the town's Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
A random selection of residents have been mailed a survey from GreenPlay, the town's Colorado-based consultant for the update. Residents should know the survey is legitimate and their cooperation in completing it is appreciated, said Mary-Diana Pouli, executive director of the town's Youth and Recreation Department.
The update will take an overall look at the town's recreation needs, including additional soccer fields, ball diamonds and possibly an aquatic center. The town hired GreenPlay late last year and is spending about $80,000 on the update, which Pouli said should be complete by later this year.
An online survey for the general public will be available at the end of July.
