Quality of Life Study and The Possibility Project

Jun 21, 2011

Part One: Charlotte Neighborhood Quality of Life Study Each year, Charlotte conducts a Quality of Life Study to help the city properly determine programs and services and how to allocate resources. This year, the city wants to make changes to the survey to get a more accurate picture of how individual neighborhoods are doing around the city, and they're seeking input from citizens. We'll talk about how the changes will improve what we know about neighborhoods throughout the city and why it may be in your best interest to give your opinion about the study.
