Borough President Diaz Announces First-Ever
‘Well Being’ Survey for Bronx Residents
Today, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz announced that his office will conduct the borough’s first-ever “well being” survey, which will measure the opinions of Bronx residents and those who work in the Bronx on a variety of issues that impact their communities.
The survey, which will be conducted online, asks respondents to rate their communities in a number of areas, from crime and education to fresh food availability and civic activity. The survey will remain open until October 31, 2011. Following the completion of the survey, one individual will be chosen at random to have brunch with Borough President Diaz.
“It is important that Bronxites participate in this survey and let my office hear from them on the specific issues that face our neighborhoods. We are ‘One Bronx,’ and this survey will help us discover what problems are shared by different neighborhoods, so that we may develop common solutions to them. The goal of this survey is to build upon newly-released Census data to perform a comprehensive, inclusive, and thorough assessment of where we are as a borough and where we want to go. I hope that as many Bronxites as possible will take a few minutes to fill out this survey and join us in that effort,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
The results of this survey will be compiled by the borough president’s office, and a report based on its outcome will be issued by the office at a later date.
