South Bend Parks & Recreation Department wants input on 5-year plan


We're getting an idea of where the South Bend Parks and Recreation Department wants to head in the future.

On Monday, officials hosted a public meeting to discuss its five-year master plan. They were looking for ideas about future developments, capital improvements and program enhancements.

They also wanted to know what people thought they were doing right. "I think they've accomplished a lot of things that they've identified as things that they need to focus on," said Landscape Architect Chris Chockley. "And I think, in the next five years, it's definitely going to have some challenges, regarding some existing facilities and programming elements, making sure they hit all the demographics that are required."

Parks officials say turnout for the meeting was phenomenal.

They say the community offered more input than they were expecting.
