Citizen Input on Parks and Recreation in the City of Hugo, Minnesota (Volume 1 Summary Report).

Dahl, Erik Cedarleaf .

The City of Hugo was at a turning point with respect to providing park
and recreation services for its growing population. Construction of the
city’s new Rice Lake Park and Athletic Complex had placed increased
demand on the city’s public works staff, and new residents in urbanizing
areas of Hugo expected additional park and recreation opportunities in
the community. A graduate student in urban planning conducted a
community attitude survey and a focus group to gather resident opinions
about the need for parks and recreation programming, their desire for
additional park and recreation facilities and amenities, and their
preferences for how to pay for such improvements. The final two-volume
report (this Summary Report—Volume 1,
and a Technical Appendices—Volume 2) was used to guide the next
steps of Hugo’s Parks Commission, Parks and Recreation Programming
Subcommittee, and City Council with respect to park and recreation
facilities and programming in the community.
