As many of you know, in June, MVCI conducted its first survey of the community, the purpose of which was to sample the insights of our residents as to those things they feel are relevant and important. We were very pleased with how responsive the neighborhood has been, and wanted to share some of those results, We received 167 responses, to our email database of about 500 names, for a response rate of 33.4%. For the statisticians out there, this is an OUTSTANDING response rate, and we sincerely appreciate those who took the time to participate.
Following are the bar graphs representing your responses, to the “non-essay” questions. We will start out with the first four questions and continue with the others in the days to come. If we can find a concise way to report the essay question findings, we’ll do that as well. In the meantime, here are the first four:
More to come!
In last month’s President’s Corner, I reviewed comments from our recent survey. The most prevalent pertained to traffic issues; speeding, running stop signs, and noise. We brought this to the attention of CMPD, and got the immediate response of Chief Rob Sharpnack, “I think we can help you, but specifics would be helpful.” So, we got them, from you, our residents. Keep the comments coming: where, what time, what day. Is it speeding, running stop signs, etc. Be specific. We are gathering all this information and working with Lt. Victor Bakkila, traffic division. Let’s hope we can make a big dent in this problem. This will be an ongoing project, and we will keep you informed of progress.
We are working on some informational Town Hall meetings in the next few months, and will announce soon. Mark your calendar for October 4th, when we will be holding our candidate forum for City Council and Mayor.
Elsewhere in this newsletter/website, you will find more detailed info on the candidate forum, The Shops at Mesa Verde, and the opening of Fire Station One.
We still have a good inventory of our famous NO SOLICITATION signs, including mounting brackets, for $5 each. Please contact Arlene Jones at 714-540 6039.
