Fairfield Senior Adult Recreation Needs Analysis

The Need

The City of Fairfield, Ohio was in the process of building a new Community Arts Center. The members of the municipality were interested in improving their understanding of the recreation needs of Fairfield area seniors in order to develop appropriate programs, activities, and services.

The Solution

  • Conducted interviews and led focus groups to gather information about activity interests, participation patterns, and proposed courses, and
  • Reviewed source documents, which included published materials, current and previous activity calendars, promotional materials, census data, and community brochures.

The Result

The development of a needs assessment provided a more complete picture of the community resources, economic status, and regional recreation opportunities for older adults in the community. Recommendations included adding specific activity offerings, updating marketing methods, and instituting program strategies, all of which are now being implemented.
