If you live in Roeland Park and missed the chance last week to give your opinions about the strategic direction for the city, you have another opportunity to have your voice heard.
The strategic planning committee is following up with an online survey. The eight-question survey asks residents to give their opinions about the city’s attributes and challenges as well as to describe what amenities they would like to see come to the city in future years. It also asks questions about creating a sense of community and commercial development that might be attractive.
Committee chair Tom Madigan said the group heard nothing but positive feedback at the open house. “People liked the opportunity (to be heard),” he said. The online survey, he said, will close by May 10. The facilitators from Wichita State University will then synthesize the information from both the open house and the online survey.
After that, the committee’s job will be to identify top priorities and how they might be achieved. “We will give them methods to accomplish the goal,” Madigan said of the final report to the city. The city council, he added, has not interfered with the citizens committee working through the strategic plans. He estimated the open house turnout at approximately 100 residents.
