Telephone survey coming to Lansing residents

Village trustees voted earlier this week to a sign a contract that will commit the village to pay up to $9,000 for its half of a telephone survey to be used for input in updating both municipalities’ comprehensive plans.

As theĀ Lansing Star Online reports, the town will pay the other half plus an additional $2,000 for a web version of the survey, which will focus on townspeople who live outside of the village.

The two municipalities are splitting the $18,000 cost of a the survey conducted by the Survey Research Institute, a local firm.

The survey will ask residents their opinions on future growth, development, community services and housing options.
