June 5, 2011 (La Mesa) --Volunteers to conduct walk audits and evaluations of City of La Mesa parks are needed during the months of June and July as part of a citywide Park Master Plan project. Volunteers will walk neighborhood areas surrounding the City’s 14 parks to identify access barriers to the parks as well as potential opportunities for adding open space or green space in areas of the community that are underserved by parks and recreational facilities.

 

 

The project goal is to create a long-term plan for updating and upgrading City parks and bringing opportunities for increased physical activity into areas of the City that are more than 15 minutes walking distance from a park facility. Volunteers must be able to walk distances, negotiate uneven terrain when necessary, and provide their own transportation to the study sites. Orientation training will be provided at a date and time to be determined. Interested volunteers can find a volunteer application on the City’s website  http://www.cityoflamesa.com/DocumentView.aspx?DID=359. Completed applications may be submitted now through June 15 to the attention of Mike Pacheco, Community Services Manager, mpacheco@ci.la-mesa.ca.us, or in person at the La MesaCommunity Center,
