COG Planning Agency Director Jim May, at last night's General Forum, gave Centre Region public officials a preview of the results of a resident survey, seeking input for use in the COG's Comprehensive Plan update.
Issues residents found important included having access to open space, focusing on good pavement quality and bridge conditions, having access to affordable housing, and protecting drinking water and water resources.
Here's the link to my previous report on the survey results: http://www.centredaily.com/2011/09/21/2921635/residents-prefer-use-of-laws-over.html#storylink=misearch.
Something May said surprised him was the two most popular ways residents wish to receive information about community meetings and issues. Respondents could choose three, with township newsletter receiving 56 percent and reading it in the CDT receiving 53 percent.
While May predicted his surprise would end up in today's story headline, to laughs from officials, it's still interesting to note that those are the top two, over U.S. mail, email, and social media.
And, for the record, May's update didn't make today's story: http://www.centredaily.com/2011/10/25/2962249/psu-to-survey-visitors-transportation.html.
Where do you get information about your community?
