Town Branch Park Launches Website With Community Survey To Receive Your Input

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Town Branch Park launched a new website today featuring a community survey for public input.

The Inclusive Park Survey will gather feedback from Lexingtonians on what makes public spaces open, welcoming and inclusive of all people.  The survey was developed through a grant from Blue Grass Community Foundation.

 “For this to truly become downtown’s living room, the park must be designed, programmed and operated based on the needs and hopes of all segments of the community,” said Allison Lankford, executive director of the Town Branch Fund. “This survey is our first communitywide effort to listen and learn from all of Lexington about what makes a space welcoming and engaging.”

The survey can be found at www.townbranchpark.org. Hard copies will be available at all Lexington Public Library branches until June 15.

Interpreter services are available upon request. 

Survey questions will cover how different people define and experience inclusion in public spaces and how Lexingtonians are currently experiencing local public spaces. The survey offers an opportunity for Lexingtonians to share their ideas in addition to simply checking off multiple-choice questions.

The Inclusive Park Survey is part of the work of the Town Branch Park Partners, the community group tasked with ensuring that inclusion and access are integral to the design. 

The project will rely on the expertise and community input gleaned from the survey and other engagement tools. Earlier input showed that delving deeply into designing spaces that are inclusive is paramount.  

Lankford suggested that people watch the video on the website first to get an idea of the possibilities and potential scope of the park. The video, created by Wrigley Media Group, can be viewed at www.townbranchpark.org. Partners are requesting that surveys be completed by June 15.

The website will continue to be updated as the planning and design process continues. In addition, citizens can follow and engage in the process through the park’s new Facebook and Instagram pages.
