Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) is seeking to understand the various hopes and expectations for our community to inform our own future plans.  Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us through this survey. 

This survey is completely anonymous though you will have the option at the end to share your name to participate in a drawing, a focus group, or both.  Results will go directly to our consultant and, if you do share your name, it will remain private and will in no way link to your comments. All results will be shared in aggregate only.

If you are taking this survey on a mobile device, it is easier to read if the device is turned sideways. 

For purposes of this survey and questions, the boundaries of Riverside Avondale are as illustrated below and bounded by I-95 to the east, I-10 to the north, and Roosevelt Blvd./Fishweir Creek to the west.
