Norwell Surveys Residents About Open Space

NorwellNorwell Residents Invited To Weigh In On Town Land

Norwell’s Open Space and Recreation Committee is looking for input from Norwell residents regarding open space and recreation issues. The committee is asking residents to complete an online survey based on their experience, interests, concerns and hopes for Norwell space.

The Norwell Open Space Plan

Massachusetts requires that all of its towns have approved open space plans before they can receive state funds for acquisition of land. To date, as a result of this process, Norwell has received $300k+ from the state, which has been used to acquire approximately 200 preserved acres of parks, open space and recreation areas in town. By completing the latest survey, Norwell residents will help plan the community’s future.

The Open Space Survey of Norwell

The current survey developed by the Norwell Open Space and Recreation Committee contains 25 questions. Residents are asked about their personal usage of town land, which lands they use most, for what types of activities, and the needs of those spaces, as well as their thoughts on the acquisition of more land. There is also opportunity for Norwell residents to write-in details and opinions. The committee is hoping to receive a large response from residents so that their plans truly reflect the needs and wants of Norwell.
