CITY OF MOUNTAIN PARK
CITIZEN SURVEY
JANUARY 2011
The city is updating our comprehensive plan. This is a process all Georgia
municipalities engage in on a regular basis and is required by the Georgia Department of
Community Affairs for our City to maintain its status as a Qualified Local Government.
This survey is one part in helping all of us create a vision for the future of our
community. There will also be a public meeting at 9 am, Saturday February 12, 2011 at
the Community Building to discuss the results of this survey and to allow input from all
citizens regarding the City’s future and its Comprehensive Plan. A Comprehensive Plan
will be drafted and a second meeting will follow to review the draft Comprehensive plan.
Please take some time to complete this survey and help us plan for the future needs of
Mountain Park. One survey should be prepared per citizen.
All points of view are welcome. Providing reasons for your response is more
helpful than yes or no answers - use extra paper or the back of this form.
Please return to City Hall before January 28th.

How should we use our public spaces?
Are there any changes you would like to see to the green?

Less strictly?
Are there changes we should make in the structure of our government or the role of
elected officials?
Would you be willing to serve for a limited time on a committee such as the Citizens
Review and Advisory Board for BZP, or Civic Club, or another similar committee?
In addition to committee participation how can the City provide opportunities for
citizens to have meaningful involvement in the decisions that affect their community?
What other citizen run opportunities for involvement should there be?
Should we establish a community watch program?
