Resident Survey

Nearly 300 residents took our pilot survey in 2015. In 2016, over 400 residents voiced their opinions on the Near West Side Resident Survey—see the results here. This was essential input that helped guide the priorities and work of Near West Side Partners over the last year. We're reaching out again this year - and we hope to hear from even more residents! The 2016 resident survey is a direct tool for influencing change in your neighborhood.
