Randolph Neighborhood Survey

 

Randolph Neighborhood Survey

Dear Neighbor:

The Randolph Neighborhood Association is reorganizing our efforts in our
neighborhood. A neighborhood association draws people together and is a
great way to keep our neighborhood safe and neighbors informed about
City processes and programs. Neighborhood participation gives you a
stronger, united voice in civic life and joins us in shared neighborhood
projects.

Once our Neighborhood Association becomes organized and recognized
our Neighborhood Association will provide us with a clear, organized way
for our members to speak to City government and improves the two-way
communication between the City and our neighborhood residents.
We need your help in identifying and prioritizing issues in our
neighborhood. The information you provide will help our Neighborhood
Association and the City of Richmond. Please take a few minutes to fill out
this survey. The results of the survey will be shared with our neighbors at
our meetings and on our website.

If you choose to include your contact info in the related survey question, you will be entered into a random drawing to win a $25 Visa gift card.
