Meeting Date: 04/21/2016  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon the draft of the Residential Survey;
FISCAL IMPACT:
The Woodlands Township has $30,000 budgeted for public opinion surveys in the Community Relations budget. As stated in the 2016 budget narrative, this line item is used to gauge public opinion of The Woodlands Township and its programs. This research includes public opinions about development in The Woodlands, public safety, wayfinding systems, transportation, shopping, dining, and other related aspects, specifically geared to services and programs of The Woodlands Township.
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township traditionally conducts a survey of The Woodlands residents approximately every two years for purposes of obtaining resident opinions of services and for use as a budgeting and planning tool. Results are online on The Woodlands Township website.

In preparation for the 2016 survey, staff has reviewed and updated the questionnaire to include most of the same questions as the previous survey. This has several benefits: to allow trending of the information by maintaining the same questions, to speed the process of getting survey results because it will eliminate time spent in approving and testing new questions, and it eliminates costs related to developing and testing new questions. New questions related to mobility and transportation were added in 2014 since this became a new responsibility of the Township.

A copy of the 2016 draft survey questionnaire is attached. It is anticipated there will be discussion about these questions and input to the survey at the Thursday, April 21, 2016 meeting.

At the April 27, 2016, Board of Directors meeting, staff will present the final survey instrument as well as a recommendation of selected consultant.

 
RECOMMENDATION:
Board of Directors to determine.
