The Committee spent time discussing the feasibility of developing and distributing a questionnaire to collect information pertinent to short and long range planning. This discussion resulted in the listing of topics that might be included in a questionnaire and an assignment for Committee members to develop tentative questions in the categories specified herein.

Existing Date: F. Stocking will look at the questionnaire contained in the Comprehensive Plan to extract potential questions to be used this time around. A risk of using information contained in the Comprehensive Plan questionnaire stems from whether the number of respondents is sufficient to constitute reliable conclusions.

M. Garrett will seek to collect whatever date from the 2000 census might prove useful to the effort.
