A portion of the study is to determine the size and potential use of a facility in which the market can support.
As a part of the planning and assessment for the project, information and opinion is being sought from the residents of Mason City and residents of the surrounding area. This information will help aid in determining the level of demand for such a facility and to gather direction how the community might best meet the public assembly facility needs.
Residents of Mason City and the surrounding counties are asked to complete a survey that can be found online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/multipurposecenter or at www.masoncity.net (click on Multi-Purpose Center Community Survey under the Residents tab). A survey can also be downloaded at the same address and dropped off at or mailed to City Hall in Mason City, Attention: Multi-Purpose Task Force, 10 1st Street NW, Mason City, IA 50401.
Surveys will also be available at Mason City City Hall and included in the upcoming utility bill from the City of Mason City. If you do not receive a utility bill and would like to receive a survey, please contact the City Administrator’s office at (641) 421-2701 and one will be mailed to you.
The deadline for submitting a completed survey is Monday, February 28, 2011.
Information received from the public and stakeholders will be used by the committee in determining the costs and benefits of a multi-purpose center in Mason City. The final report will be presented to the Mason City City Council in May.
For more information, contact Mason City City Administrator Brent Trout at (641) 421-2701.
