University Place residents say they want more neighborhood streetlights and sidewalks, according to a survey conducted by the University Place Capital Strategy Task Force. More than 80 percent of those surveyed also would like the city to continue funding improvements to existing parks and recreational facilities.
These results come from a survey that was mailed to a quarter of University Place households in October. The results of the random survey are statistically accurate within a margin of at least +/-4.2 percent.
In all, the survey sought community opinions through 18 questions on a variety of topics related to capital projects. Denise McCluskey, vice chair of the Task Force, will present all the survey results, including information about citizen willingness to pay for needed improvements.
McCluskey’s presentation will take place at the Dec. 5 City Council meeting. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 3715 Bridgeport Way W., University Place.
The Capital Strategy Task Force is comprised of 22 citizens who are working to help the city develop a strategy to address more than $200 million in identified street, park and facility needs.
