The town team met yesterday afternoon to review and finalize the benchmark survey that the UNH team will send to comparable towns ( that list was agreed upon on September 12th) and also the citizen survey due to be available within the next week or so,
Look for a post card mailing with detailed instructions on how to complete the survey ( online and in hard copy).
It is important to have as many surveys back as possible so that we can get to a final product that will settle this contentious issue once and for all. No survey or study is perfect, but the process set out by the UNH team to include as much live interaction with the public as possible and timed when many of our snowbirds are still here in town, leads me to believe that it will be fair and data driven. In addition, we have a balanced town team to provide honest oversight and direction.
The more participation, the better the end result.
