Take the Department of Neighborhoods survey

In a follow-up step to the Mayor’s announcement that he is discontinuing ties to the Neighborhood District Councils, the Department of Neighborhoods has posted a quick survey to gather statistics on how residents want to receive information from city government.

You can take the survey here.

One can assume that this isn’t the only outreach the Department of Neighborhoods will do as it figures out how to replace the DC’s. The questions it asks in the survey are a start, but the issues run much deeper. More than anything else, this survey will serve to provide supporting evidence that ethnicity and language are two other dimensions of “community” that aren’t represented by the current geography-based structure.
