1. Introduction

Dear Resident,
Thank you for your participation in this survey. The Towns of Douglas, Mendon, and Uxbridge, with assistance from the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC), are currently undertaking a comprehensive housing study to identify the housing needs of each community and determine appropriate strategies for facilitating the development of affordable housing in the region. This 18-month process, which will be completed in June 2021, aims to collect and analyze the most up to date housing and population data, gather community input on housing needs, and create a strategic plan for addressing the region's housing issues. Your honest feedback on the current state of housing in your community and the region will help guide this process.

We want to assure you that your responses to this survey will be completely anonymous. Responses cannot be traced back to the respondent. If you choose to include your name and email address (see Question 19) to stay involved in this housing study, those conducting the survey will not be informed of your answers. 

A regional workshop will be held remotely following the closure of this survey to review survey results and further explore the housing needs of Douglas, Mendon, and Uxbridge. Stay tuned for the confirmed date and time. We hope you will be able to attend! 

If you have further questions or comments, please contact: Ron Barron, rbarron@cmrpc.org, or Emily Glaubitz, eglaubitz@cmrpc.org

Please complete this survey by Friday December 4, 2020 at 5pm.
