Comprehensive Plan Survey

I’ve mentioned previously that the township is undergoing a comprehensive planning process. You can find the previous plan here from 2006. I got a postcard today with a link to the survey as well as the details of the public meeting at WES on March 14th from 7-9 pm. Postcards are a pretty efficient way to reach out to the public.

The link to the survey is available online here. The questions are all pretty open-ended. The text of the survey is:

The Township is in the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan, which evaluates the existing land use, transportation systems, housing, community facilities and services, nature, and culture of our Township. The Plan projects future trends, establishes a series of goals, and proposes a list of policy and physical recommendations. When implemented, the recommendations will help the Township achieve goals identified through the planning process and accommodate expected changes while protecting the community character and valuable resources that make the Township unique. We appreciate you taking the time to complete our survey.

  1. What challenges do you see for the community?
  2. What opportunities do you see for the Township?
  3. What is working well?
  4. Why did you move to Nether Providence or why do you continue to live in Nether Providence?
  5. What would make you move from Nether Providence?
  6. If you were in charge, what would you change about Nether Providence Township? (You should write down anything you feel will enhance the quality of life in Nether Providence).
  7. Name (optional)
  8. Ward – Not sure of your ward? Please look here: Map of Wards

The 7 questions have boxes where you can input your answers and the last has a pull-down list of options. This is your chance to raise issues like affordable housing, development, parks and recreation, public safety, transportation, waste and sewer issues and so on. The more responses the township gets, the more complete view they will have of what’s working well and what isn’t.
