Take the Online Survey
Deadline: Sunday, November 29
As part of its Phase II exploration of the possibility of pursuing a community center in UA, the Task Force is seeking resident input as it considers options for a location, building program and cost/operations scenarios. A statistically valid telephone survey was recently completed for a limited number of randomly selected households. An online version of this survey is now open to all residents who wish to provide input on this community issue.
Please check back for details of Phase II youth engagement.
At the community meeting the Task Force’s consultants shared high-level “blocking and stacking” concepts for the two locations under consideration (former Macy’s site at Kingsdale, and the Municipal Services Center), showing how the various programing components could be incorporated within the available footprint. The presentation and meeting video are now available and the Task Force invites residents to watch the presentation and share your thoughts with them, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A community meeting was held to provide residents an opportunity to learn more about the feasibility study, and to provide feedback on the primary questions being addressed in this first phase.
A statistically valid survey was fielded from early March through mid-April. This type of survey process is designed to ensure that responses are reflective of the community as a whole. Three thousand randomly selected households were mailed a survey packet that included a cover letter, hard copy of the survey with a postage-paid envelope, as well as a link to complete the survey online if preferred. The survey yielded 632 responses, far exceeding the goal of 400.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the timing for an online survey open to all residents was put on hold.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of surveys for the community’s youth were put on hold.
