Residents selected to take a community survey who have not yet returned the document are urged to do so as soon as possible. Surveys were mailed in early September to addresses chosen randomly. About 1,200 responses are needed for a 95 percent confidence level. Respondents remain anonymous. While taking only about 15 minutes to complete, the surveys will help policy makers better understand priorities for government action and citizen opinions on quality of life and public services. Similar surveys were conducted here in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2011 and 2013. Results of these past surveys are posted at www.oak-park.us/communitysurveys.
