Response to the Colfax Parks use survey totaled 249 April 26 with one day left before the Friday deadline for returning survey forms. The survey form was mailed out as part of the process to develop a new five-year plan for parks and recreations in Colfax.
The current five-year plan will expire at the end of this year.
Having a current parks plan on file is one of the requirements for making grant fund requests for development. Among other projects, the McDonald Park recreation complex north of the golf course was developed with the assistance of state recreation grants funds.
The mailout of the survey forms was done off voter registration lists for the town. Active voters registered in the four Colfax precincts now total 1,676.
