Little Mountain residents are being called on to help a University of the Sunshine Coast researcher assess what makes a community a great place to live.
USC PhD student Caroline Osborne is currently distributing information about her urban planning research to 2,000 households in Little Mountain and surrounding areas, encouraging people to have their say on issues that affect them.
“I’m inviting residents to take part in a survey that will ask them what they like and what needs improvement in Little Mountain,” she said.
“This kind of information is really important as it can help to inform future planning and resourcing decisions in the neighbourhood.
“It can assist in planning great communities that account for a range of different personal preferences, family composition and stages of life.
Ms Osborne said the survey would only take about 10 minutes to complete and could be done online or in hard copy form.
“I would encourage residents to make their voices heard so the aspects they love about living in Little Mountain, and any challenges they face, can be recognised and addressed,” she said.
To do the survey, either go online or contact Ms Osborne on 0419 862 679 to arrange for a hard copy version and a reply paid envelope to be delivered.
