Sign up to keep informed and participate in a survey

The City of Flagstaff is updating it's Parks and Recreation Master Plan and wants your input. Did you know that the city currently uses Treated Sewage Effluent to irrigate these parks? Did you know that it has now been scientifically proven that places irrigated with filtered poop water have been found to be accumulating pharmaceuticals over an extended period of time? Did you know that Arizona Law (R18-11-303) only requires wastewater to be free of 'fecal coliforms' (thats poo) in four of seven daily samples? Did you know that the recent outbreaks of food borne illness has been linked to the use of treated sewage irrigation?

Do you think this is what we should be asking our children to play in?
Have you ever sat in the grass at Wheeler Park?
Does this give you a bit of the creeps now?

Besides, isn't it time the city itself admitted we live in a desert and started saving the taxpayers and the environment a bundle and just have a desert landscape? Here is your chance to let the city know how you feel.

Below is from the City of Flagstaff Website:

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

A fundamental goal of this plan is to reflect the vision of Flagstaff residents and businesses. Throughout the development of this plan, the City is taking several actions so it can learn about how you use Parks and Recreation programs and facilities, and how the City can meet your needs. These include:

  • Community-wide Survey about how you use or participate in parks and recreation services, programs, facilities or parks. The survey will be available on this web page in early December 2010, and we will be working with NAU to survey residents in person from Dec. 2 to 5, 2010. Our survey takers will be located throughout the community. Contact us to offer your assistance in administering the survey.
  • Public Open House Meetings. We are planning to hold two (2) public open houses for review and comment on the plan. These meetings will be scheduled in the late winter and early fall of 2011. Check back for dates, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to be placed on our notification list.
  • Parks and Recreation Commission Briefings. Periodically, we will brief the Parks and Recreation Commission about our progress. If you would like to be informed of these briefings, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to be placed on our notification list. (NOTE: If you are on the notification list already, you will be notified of all meetings and public engagement opportunities.)
