You are invited to take a survey:  SOUTH PORTLAND OPEN SPACE

The City of South Portland is developing an Open Space Strategic Plan and we need your help!

Open space generally includes areas such as parks, trails, beaches and forested areas. The survey will ask about how you currently use open space in South Portland and how the city might prioritize the preservation of open space in the future.

The survey will take less than 10 minutes.   Please click here to take the survey.
