Shawano seeks survey answers for rec center grant application

The Shawano Parks and Recreation Department is conducting an online survey in pursuit of a $4 million grant to improve the Shawano Recreation Center, 220 E. Division St.

The survey consists of a dozen questions with yes or no answers. It takes about two minutes to complete.

Questions focus on the benefit of free high-speed internet and access to computers at the center, free spaces for private meetings and classes, new locker rooms, a more accessible layout, increased space for the exercise area, a remodeled front entrance, a giant fish tank to raise baby sturgeon and court space with free open gym times.
