1. About this survey:

Survey Period: The Survey is open until July 7th, 2020. All comments will be reviewed and included in the Final Draft Strategic Vision Plan 2040. The initial draft report will be available for the public to review during the public comment period from June 24 until July 7th. During that time, Deliverable 1 through 4 will also be available. The previous reports detail specific findings and methods to arrive at the Strategic Vision Plan 2040.

Purpose: To establish a resident-driven element in setting goals and tasks for the final Strategic Vision Plan 2040 for the Town of Orange Park, the following survey matches existing and emerging urban design principles with community desires expressed in workshops, walk shops, and the previous two surveys.  Results from Survey 3 will help Town leaders identify which vision strategy to move forward with and begin an implementation plan and communication strategy that will assist the Town.  Community input is vital to set short term strategies and large scale, long-term concepts in order to avoid failed goals.

Survey feedback will be included in the final report appendix and accompanied by a brief memo of findings. Survey questions are categorized by common elements defined by the Strategic Vision Re-ImagineThemes presented during Workshop 3 part 1. That presentation and report are available for review at
