Take our survey please

30 Nov

Some of you may have already been surveyed in person at the Logan Square Hub, but for those who haven’t:  If you use the Logan Square Blue Line train station/bus terminal at Milwaukee and Kedzie Avenues, we have three quick questions to help us determine what’s important to you.

Please participate in our survey by December 10 13, 2011.

Thank you.

    I think the methodology of your survey is a bit skewed. Frankly, aside from possibly having better pedestrian crossings, I’m not interested in any of the improvements you mention in your survey. The fact that we are asked to choose three options with no opportunity for other suggestions, likely means that you will be able to approach the city and say “The people who answered our survey voted for these things”, while overlooking the fact that there were no options besides the ones listed and pushed for by your organization. I would have liked and option to vote for the idea that the Logan Square hub is (mostly) fine as it is. This is a big oversight, and the reason I did not complete your survey. Our city resources could be put to much better use than to landscape an area whose main use is waiting a few minutes for a bus.

      If you’d like better pedestrian crossings, you would select Improved/safer street crossings on Question 3 of the survey. Or you could skip Question 3.

      BikeWalk Logan Square’s ideas go far beyond landscaping. We would like to see the plaza used beyond just waiting for a bus.

      We do want to hear the wider community’s views, so let us know. We had a community meeting in August, but it was sparsely attended. The survey is another way at getting to the community’s interests. Here is a good forum for you to share your views without the constraints of the survey. Comment away!

      Eric,
      We’d love to hear your ideas. Please share with us, or attend our next meeting. Also, we do not yet know how this project will be funded, so it is not safe to assume that city resources will be used. Just a note.
