2020 Survey Results

The survey results are in!  Thanks to everyone who took the opportunity to respond to one or more of the three surveys.  The response rate was excellent - approximately 50% of the people that received an invitation, participated – much higher than the typical survey response rate of 20% or less.

 Our hope was to come away with themes that will help us to guide long-term development and planning for Frye Island.  Several themes did emerge: 

·        As a community we value the rustic atmosphere of the island and its natural beauty.  We need to be sure that we are good stewards of what we have been given and assure its existence for future generations. 

·        We need to carefully plan and monitor island development and its impact upon island services such as ferry, beaches, community center, etc.  Services must adapt and be rightsized to the needs of the community. 

·        The Executive Committee can improve communication, whether it be ordinances and policies, or managing announcements in the event of an emergency.   

As next steps, the Executive Committee has formed three sub-committees to further flesh out the details of these themes and potentially issue clarifying surveys.  This work will form the basis of a long-term plan for the island.  We will be reviewing all of this in the coming public Executive Committee sessions.   

Attached to this message are the survey results.  Please review them and feel free to follow up with members of the Executive Committee to share additional thoughts and comments. 

Once again, thanks for sharing your input, it is valued and appreciated.
