Community Input Survey

Why Get Involved?

The Project Team is very interested in knowing how the local community uses the Kingsland Avenue (De Jessa Memorial) Bridge, any current traffic concerns and what improvements the public would like to see in the future. Community Outreach during the planning stages is a vital part of the LCD process and we encourage the community to participate and provide input.

Identifying existing and potential stakeholders is a critical step in the LCD process. A stakeholders survey will be mailed out and available on the web site. The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and can be completed in hard copy or online. For a summary of the survey findings, please click here. #Stakeholder Survey Summary
