2018 Essex Open Space and Recreation Plan Survey

The Essex Open Space Committee has recently updated the Town’s Open Space and Recreation Plan and is looking to hear from residents to help prioritize action items in the plan. Your feedback will help guide the town and the Open Space Committee in determining which projects and programs to pursue. This survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your thoughts about Essex!
