Municipalities in New Jersey are required to update their comprehensive master plan every decade to guide land use and zoning decisions and regulations as well as to guide capital improvements and infrastructure investments. The best community planning efforts have a robust community planning process which includes public opinion surveys, stakeholder interviews, focus groups and even community meetings or “charrettes”. While it is challenging to conduct public meetings during a pandemic/public health emergency, the Town of Kearny is making its best effort to solicit public input. In addition to a public opinion survey, the Town of Kearny will be following up with stakeholder interviews of local elected and appointed officials, local business owners and community leaders, and those who are active in local civic, community, cultural, recreational and religious groups, clubs and organizations.
As an added incentive to take this public opinion survey, those completing the survey may enter into a drawing to win a $100.00 gift card/gift certificate to their favorite Kearny business, or have a donation made to their favorite local charity. Each survey and drawing entry may only be taken once per person or per e-mail address.
This survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Your time and participation is greatly appreciated. Your individual answers are confidential and will remain strictly anonymous. We would like to reach as many residents and businesses as possible. Please feel free to share this survey and forward to family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. The survey will be available through November 30, 2020.
Thank you for your time and participation.
