It’s survey time in Pasco County again, as government officials look to get feedback from residents and businesses about the future of the county.
The 2014 Citizen Survey includes questions about quality of life, speed of growth, crime and safety, public transit, recycling, and general services, according to a release from the county. It also asks questions about the State Road 54/56 corridor, where an unsolicited bid to build an estimated $2.2 billion elevated toll road has been proposed.
Data from the survey is combined from its random, scientific National Citizen Survey, and provides input for prioritizing planning efforts and budget allocations.
County Administrator Michele Baker wrote a letter promoting the survey, talking about the sampling size used in the national survey.
“There have been some previous letters and comments about the sampling size, albeit small (at) around 1,600, used by the National Citizen Survey,” she wrote. “This is a separate survey, using many of the same questions, to provide the county commissioners with valuable citizen input and feedback.”
The survey uses scientifically proven research methods to sample a cross-section of the population, Baker said, adding it was “just one additional tool to help our county commissioners better represent” Pasco County residents and businesses.
The survey is open online through May 31, and can be accessed at PascoCountyFl.net.
