Can you say "Yes" to the question "Has your opinion been heard?"

Residents and stakeholders should participate in the development of the city's comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan, Play DC by voting for and commenting on fundamental questions about parks and recreation facilities via Let's Play DC (a crowdsourcing platform, see screen shot below) and an online survey.

Want to know more about the master plan being developed?   According to the Play DC website,

We need your help to develop a comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan for the city! This plan will guide a new, bold and strategic vision for advancing DC's parks and recreation resources. From small pocket parks perfect for reading a book to large recreation centers full of active programs, DPR wants to provide you with the best system in the nation! Washingtonians deserve the best recreational programs and facilities — places where everyone has the opportunity to get out and play.

Nonprofits and other programs can encourage their clients to share their views on recreation facilities and green space.   It's a great way to engage people and can be a terrific way to participate in community building no matter the type of program you operate.
