U.S. adults want their local governments to invest in community infrastructure, such as parks, community centers, recreation facilities and senior centers. These investments allow for increased access to green space and nature, help bring vital services and programs to the community, and improve the physical and mental health of all residents.

Key Findings:

  • More than nine in ten U.S. adults say it is important for local government to invest in community infrastructure.
  • Seventy percent of U.S. adults say investing in community infrastructure by local government is extremely or very important.
  • Three in four Gen Xers say investing in community infrastructure by local government is extremely or very important.
