Community Center Survey Casts Wide Net

NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio – Officials in New Middletown attempting to determine interest and support for construction of a community center are seeking input from those in a 10-mile radius.

The survey will be distributed throughout the community during the month of March, seeking to determine what amenities in a community center would best meet the needs of those planning to utilize a community center, including types of uses and costs for the rental.

Predicting that people may come to use it within 20 minutes of the village, officials would like those living within the area extending from Campbell and Youngstown to the north, East Palestine to the south, Mount Jackson to the east and North Lima to the west to participate in the survey.

“This community center is meant to be a place where we can all come together an engage in conversation, activities and recreation. It is not meant to compete with sister centers, yet complement them,” states Councilwoman Ginner Younger.

The village is in the early planning stages of the project.

Paper surveys by a committee of interested residents will be distributed, but the survey also is available on the village website, posted on local Facebook pages and available through a QR Code. Surveys should be completed and returned by April 1 to the Village of New Middletown, 10711 Main Street, New Middletown, 44442. Those participating will be entered in a drawing to win one of four $50 Visa gift cards.
