Stakeholder Survey

Why Get Involved?
The Project Team is very interested in knowing how the local community uses the bridge, any current traffic concerns and what improvements the public would like to see in the future.  Community Outreach during the planning stages is a vital part of the LCD process and we encourage the community to participate and provide input.

Identifying existing and potential stakeholders is a critical step in the LCD process.  Beginning February 28, 2014, 108 stakeholder surveys were mailed out and follow-up reminder emails were sent.  The initial Stakeholder Survey had an 11% return rate as of 3/21/14.  The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and can be completed in hard copy or online.  For a summary of the survey findings, please click here (PDF - 169KB).

The survey doesn’t take very long to complete and the input shared is crucial to the project.  Please feel free to complete the online survey now!

If you don’t wish to complete the survey, but want to be informed of the project and upcoming meetings, please complete the Contact Form.

If you have general comments or questions or comments, you are welcomed to complete the Comment Form.
