Based upon some recent comments about the UNH feasibility study survey, some clarification is in order.
No survey is perfect and it is but one piece of a larger puzzle, which when it all comes together paints a picture of what it is that the respondents are really saying. There is no guarantee for any survey medium, whether online or on paper, that will prevent dishonesty. The online survey is limited to one per computer for that purpose so as to prevent "stuffing the ballot box". When you complete the survey online, if you attempt to complete it again from the same computer, a reminder will be displayed that you have already taken the survey.
If people answer the questions honestly, we will know for example if you are a Moultonboro resident or not and whether you are seasonal or not and that is information that can be pulled from the results to differentiate the respondents and their answers. One way the UNH team will " proof" the survey results will be in the focus groups. Do the people that show up to speak match what they read in the surveys?
As to questions for the town team, please be assured that we want this process to be as open and transparent as possible so come this evening and ask questions. If there is a perception that the public is being shut out, the end result will be unsuccessful.
