East Chicago Parks and Recreation Department (ECPRD) needs your input! 

The subjects of parks, recreation, and community facilities/spaces are several important aspects concerning the quality of life in East Chicago. As such the ECPRD would like to invite you, its resident, in helping with the upcoming five year Parks and Recreation Plan. 
The ECPRD would like to set goals and objectives for this upcoming 2013-2018 Parks and Recreation Plan. To set and achieve those goals and objectives, the ECPRD requires public involvement. In this plan the ECPRD will recognize resource constraints and strive to encourage early public participation. The ECPRD would like to involve the public as often as it can throughout this decision making process and also identify, communicate with and listen to affected sectors of the public. 

We are asking for your attendance and participation to any of the following meetings: 

Monday – February 4th, 2013 6:00pm – 8:00pm at Heritage Hall Community Center located at 4506 Tod Ave. This will be the first public input meeting. 

Tuesday – February 5th, 2013 6:00pm – 7:00pm at Marktown Community Center located at 3509 Spruce Street. This will be the first focus group. 

Monday – February 11th, 2013 6:00pm – 7:00pm at Martin Luther King Community Center located 4802 Melville Ave. This will be the second focus group meeting. 

Tuesday – February 12th, 2013 6:00pm – 8:00pm at Roberto Clemente Community Center located at 3616 Elm Street. This will be the second public input meeting. 

This process will help the ECPRD formulate your issues, ideas, and opinions into achievable goals and objectives to add to the five year plan. If you have any questions regarding this process or any of the meetings/focus groups please do not hesitate in calling the Parks and Recreation Department’s main office number at 391-8474 or visit
We would like to formally thank you for helping the City of East Chicago with its five year Park and Recreation Plan and look forward to your participation.
