Surveys are being mailed to a random sample of Maui County residents by the Maui Department of Parks and Recreation in an effort to establish priorities for the future improvement and development of parks and recreation facilities, programs, and services within Maui County.

The survey invites residents to tell the County about how they currently use parks and recreation facilities as well as what improvements they would like to see in the future.

SMS, a local research firm, will be collecting the data on behalf of the County of Maui. SMS will send surveys, receive completed surveys back at their offices, and report a summary of the data to the department.

County officials say all survey responses will be anonymous and completely confidential. The entire survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and can be sent back to SMS using the postage-paid envelope that will be provided.

The Maui County Department of Parks & Recreation encourages those who receive a survey to complete it within 14 days of receipt.


The Department will use the information provided in the surveys to create action plans in each geographic park region to assist in the prioritization of capital improvement projects, development of recreation programs, and enhancement of other aspects of the department’s operations.
