VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The month-long High Desert Survey has reached its midpoint and according to Bradco Companies President Joe Brady, the response from the public so far has been “extraordinary.”
According to Brady, as of August 16th over 6,700 residents and 150 businesses have participated in the survey.
The High Desert Survey has been endorsed by US Representative Paul Cook, State Senator Scott Wilk (21st District), California Assemblyman Jay Obernolte and San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Third District Representative Dawn Rowe.
“The High Desert Survey is a great opportunity for residents, business owners, and government officials to weigh in on what they see as challenges and opportunities for the High Desert Region”, according to Supervisor Rowe, who went on to say that “The responses generated from the survey will be used as a tool to guide community leaders who are interested in improving the lives of the residents and businesses they serve.”
Senator Wilk said “This survey is a unique opportunity to weigh in on where you think the High Desert is today and the direction it should go in the future. Since a survey is only as accurate as the number of people who participate, I strongly encourage all High Desert residents to take advantage of this opportunity and be part of crafting the future of the region. Don’t waste a minute-take that survey today.”
Regional economist Dr. John Husing and his colleague Dr. Barbara Sirotnik of California State University, San Bernardino, will use the data gathered to compile a ‘Solutions Report’ intended to identify the five-to-ten major community issues that impact our region.
Brady said the public has been incredible and in the first 9 days, 5,500 people took the survey. “At the end of the day, we want to be able to give Dr. Husing, by September 15th, enough data to CalState from San Bernardino that he can work on a solutions report.”
Brady said the report is expected to be completed sometime in April 2020 and will outline major items in the area including crime, under-educated workforce, lack of housing, too much welfare, lack of quality jobs, and negative perception.
Dr. Husing’s report will offer solutions to the declining quality of life in the high desert.
“With less than two weeks to go in the data gathering process the High Desert Survey is on track to provide our residents and community decision-makers with the largest sample of resident opinions that has ever been generated in our region,” stated Brady.
Whether you live or work in the High Desert, we have a common goal to improve the economic stability, quality of life today and for future generations. The survey will take about 10 minutes for your voice to be heard.
