Final Review Comprehensive Plan Survey Questions

 

Jessica Beckendorf revised the resident survey based on comments from Planning Commission members in July. Commissioners reviewed the most recent version of the resident survey and finalized the questions. Helen will send the final survey question revisions to Jessica Beckendorf who will complete the survey. Marv will contact Jessica to learn when the final version of the survey will be completed and ready for printing, the file format in which the survey file can be exported, when the online version will be accessible, and whether UW-Extension staff can input survey results from paper copies.

Commissioners discussed the details of survey distribution and completion. Residents will learn about the survey through the town’s newsletter which will be sent at the end of August. Information will also be published on the town’s website. The town chairperson intends to mail a copy of the survey to each household and make additional paper copies available from the town clerk. Paper surveys can be returned by mail or placed in the mailbox at the Community Center. Additionally, residents will be informed that an online version of the survey is available. During Caledonia Fest, to encourage residents who have not completed the survey to do so, a kiosk will be set up at which attendees can complete paper or online surveys. A final date for completing and returning surveys was not established.

Comprehensive Plan Review of Chapter 2

Commissioners analyzed chapter 2 revised tables and created minimal revised text for the Comprehensive Plan. As they reviewed the tables, there were questions about the currency of the data, and commissioners felt they needed more updated data to be able to accurately forecast township trends. Marv has invited Ryan Brown, Director of the Planning and Zoning Department of Waupaca County, and Jessica Beckendorf, UW-Extension Community Development Educator, to attend the Planning Commission’s September meeting to discuss the review and revision of the Comprehensive Plan.

 

The meeting adjourned at 7:15 p.m.
