Respondents were asked to respond to a question about Economic and Residential Focus. The question was:
Smithville is growing as a residential community. The future could see the community evolve as a ‘dormitory community’ or grow its own unique business and industry sector offering local employment. What do you think should be the approach to getting the residential and business mix right?
Scale: 1 = ‘Community focuses only on traditional residential amenities that enhance quality of life for residents’; 10 = ‘The community focuses on innovative economic development, such as a building a vibrant downtown corridor, new recreation zones and new business and technology areas’.
