The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan Community Survey was to assess which issues residents identified as most important to the physical development of the City. The surveys that were filled out online were tabulated electronically and the handwritten responses were entered by City staff, with the assistance of a graduate student intern. Both results were then compiled into tables and charts.
The written comments submitted in response to the open-ended final question of the survey were reviewed, and the general ideas that were expressed were extracted and used to define major themes that would become part of the Comprehensive Plan.
A report of the Community Survey process has been issued and included a narrative description of the results of both the online and print surveys, survey results displayed in data tables and ranked in highest to lowest order of priority based on the total amount of responses to each subject matter. Pie charts and bar charts have also been used to illustrate the results graphically.
