Communication and Planning02 Jun 2011 05:21 pm

A few weeks ago the PSCA sent out a survey to gauge how people feel about the neighborhood and get suggestions on what issues the civic association should be focusing on. Over 130 of you responded and provided a lot of great insight. Among the results are:

1. A tie for first between “More affordable than some other areas” and “Good access to downtown” (both at 23%) for what attracted you to the neighborhood.

2. 52% responded that we have made a LITTLE progress over the past year in keeping the sidewalks clean while another 12% said we have made a LOT of progress. 29% said gotten worse or no change.

3. Similarly, 79% think the neighborhood has made either a LITTLE or a LOT of progress over the last two years compared to 10% who said not much change or things have gotten worse.

4. And for the question “How can we make the neighborhood better?” we received a fairly even distribution of answers with “Planning and attracting new businesses or development” and “Making our neighborhood safer (townwatch, organizing police meetings, etc.)” tied for first at 13%, followed closely by “Fixing up boarded houses” (12%) and “Helping our Schools Run Better” (12%).  More information for how you can help improve safety and help our schools run better is coming shortly.

If you haven’t filled out the survey, there’s still time. Click here to find the survey. It takes no more than two minutes but your contribution will help the neighborhood for years. Full results of the survey, including the comments, suggestions and other ideas provided by those who completed it are available at this link (.pdf).
