Connect to Walk Survey

Wharton has partnered with the Morris Park Alliance and the Morris County Park Commission for a project called Connect to Walk. In the interest of providing physical activity opportunities through walking and biking, the project committee researches the community and its current resources and amenities. Materials are then provided that include a project summary, recommendations for connecting trails, sidewalks, and street lanes, and maps of the project zone.

As a part of the project, a survey has been created in order to assess the residents and interests of the community in order to provide a more customized recommendation for connections for physical activity.
