Survey in the works

Sewickley Hills officials are crafting a survey to gauge what residents want in parks and recreation amenities and services. There have been several discussions in the past few weeks about the survey. However, it is unclear when it would be ready to send out.

Inquiries may include whether residents want new playgrounds, tennis court, baseball fields, bingo and more.

Borough secretary Diana Steele said the survey is still in the planning stages. More information about borough activities is available at
