Community Opinion Survey Results Show Overwhelming Support for Continuing NRP

The NRP Policy Board has released the results of a community opinion survey that coincided with a series of five community meetings aimed at obtaining public input regarding future funding, governance and staff support for the NRP in the face of mounting city budget constraints.

One of the most striking results revealed by the survey was that 88 percent of the respondents said they strongly agreed or agreed that the NRP should be continued. Nearly 91 percent of the respondents also strongly agreed or agreed that neighborhoods should receive NRP funds to support implementation of projects and programs identified by neighborhoods as priorities in their action plans.

A total of 461 surveys were completed either at the meetings or through alternative methods made available to people who were unable to attend them. Nearly half of the surveys (210) were completed by the more than 330 people that attended the meetings while 153 ballots were submitted online and an additional 98 ballots were submitted by mail.

The downloadable file below contains the cumulative responses to the survey questions as well as a breakdown of responses received at the meetings, through the mail and from the NRP Web site. Attached to this report is a compilation of the written comments that were submitted at the meetings on the survey form. You will need a copy of Acrobat Reader to view the survey results.
