The Scotch Plains Downtown Redevelopment Committee (SPDRC) launched a new survey today aimed to gather input from the community on both a new, expanded library and a community center facility. The need for this has been identified through Downtown Redevelopment Committee member comments and public input at several meetings.
As part of the planning for both a new, expanded library and a community center facility, this survey was developed by the Social Recreation Study Group of the SPDRC. Participation in the survey will help guide the SPDRC and the Planning Board as they formulate and discuss plans for both a new, expanded library and a community center. The SPDRC asks that participants please take the time to answer each question, including the open-ended questions, as your input will greatly help with planning. Any plans will be reviewed, approved, and adopted by the Township Council.
The online survey can be found at, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sp-library-community-center or by visiting https://www.scotchplainsnj.gov/departments/downtown-redevelopment-committee/, and the Township’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ScotchPlainsTwp/ or Twitter page https://twitter.com/scotchplainstwp?lang=en
Hard copies of the survey can be found at Scotch Plains Town Hall, 430 Park Avenue, Room 205 and the Scotch Plains Library, 1927 Bartle Avenue. After completion, hard copy surveys can be submitted at a dropbox in Town Hall Room 205 or the Library or mailed to the Township of Scotch Plains, Attn: Thomas Strowe, 430 Park Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ 07076.
The online version is set to only allow one submission per IP address. For those who are filling out the hard copy survey, we ask that you please adhere to the honor system and fill out only one survey.
“Participation in this survey will be very important to our redevelopment plans,” said Mayor Al Smith, who is Chairman of the SPDRC. “The SPDRC has been discussing including both a new, expanded library and a community center as part of a redevelopment plan for some time now, and results from this survey will help us understand the needs of our residents.”
