Community Focus

Respondents were asked to respond to a question about Community Focus. The question was:

The community of Smithville has been undergoing demographic change and an increase in population. The ‘small town feel’ of Smithville has been highlighted in the community survey as both an opportunity and a challenge to retain. What do you think should be the ‘societal focus’ of the community over the coming years?

Scale: 1 = ‘The community focuses exclusively on internal key priorities for existing residents, including strong school district and peaceful neighborhoods’; 10 = ‘The community focuses on being attractive and relevant to a wide cross-section of people.’

Key things to note:

  • Responses to this question are more spread, with a significant percentage of people selecting most categories.
  • Overall, the results lean to the end that is defined as ‘The community focuses on being attractive and relevant to a wide cross-section of people’.
