Survey Purpose

The purpose of the survey below is to collect individual opinions regarding the future use of the property on which currently reside the Punta Gorda Boat Club and Bayfront Center Buildings in Gilchrist Park. The information collected will be used to provide city leaders with preliminary viewpoints of the community’s desires. This will be shared with the City Manager, City Council, and their designees. While proposed construction at the site is currently unfunded, replacement of the existing aging buildings is in the city's long range plan. Findings from this survey may be used to provide input into the next phase of the project. Individual survey responses will be anonymous.

The survey consists of 13 questions and takes less than 5 minutes to answer. Thanks for helping us continue to make Punta Gorda a great place to live, work and play.
