Albemarle residents invited to complete biennial community survey
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Albemarle County wants to hear from residents about their satisfaction with services and resources.
The biennial community survey is now available online.
According to a release, responses will help inform strategic planning, resource allocation, and program offerings as well as letting county leaders check in with members of the community.
The last time this kind of survey took place was in late 2019.
At that time, respondents said they were happy with fire rescue and police services, but improvements were needed regarding land use, planning, zoning, and solid waste or recycling.
In the years since, Albemarle County has begun work to update its Comprehensive Plan and modernize its zoning ordinance.
It has also launched an electronic submission form for many land use applications.
And the county worked with the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority to create new convenience centers in Ivy and Keene that provide recycling options and tag-a-bag trash services.
Plans are currently in the works for another convenience center in the northern part of the county.
The survey is available until Nov. 29 and the results will be available next year.
