2015 Needs Assessment Survey


As we continue to design and refine the Creative Spaces project model, we want to make sure that you remain part of the conversation and that your voice is being heard. The main goal if the Creative Spaces initiative is to build a space that the community is calling for.

With this project, we will begin to address each of your concerns, but there are limits to what this particular building can offer, which is why we need you to fill out the survey below. Please take a few minutes to update us on your current and projected creative space needs and let your voice be heard.

Even if you have filled out a questionaire in the past on this subject, it is vital that we move into this new phase with a crystal clear picture of what the community needs at this point in time.  To build the most sustainable model we very much need your participation.

Below is a link to an online survey that will take about 10 minutes to complete. We will leave the survey up for two weeks. The results of this survey will help us to align our project plan as closely as possible with the current needs of the community, while working towards building an accessible space for everyone.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this form. Help us help you!
