The Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy’s 2016 Community Survey created the largest and most reliable set of data about how this community thinks and feels about it’s namesake reservoirs - many thanks to all of you who completed the survey. It was sent to over 3,400 randomly selected households within the SL Neighborhood Council’s boundaries and yielded more than 800 completed surveys. While in no way intended to substitute for the upcoming master planning process / community meetings, these detailed and statistically reliable results should help to identify a baseline of community preferences and concerns regarding possible future improvements on the reservoir property.
The full report not only presents analysis of all the data from the survey responses, but is chock full of quotes and comments from community members that create a rich picture of the community’s thoughts about this unique resource. Specifically outlined are FOUR KEY FINDINGS and how they relate to a number of projects that have been proposed over the years. ([And yes - there is a 2-Page Executive Summary!]

Please let us know if you would like a printed hard copy of the survey report or if you have any questions about the survey or it’s methodology. SLRC looks forward to the upcoming master planning process and will continue our nearly 30-year mission of advocating for improvements at the reservoirs that are supported by a wide swath of our committed and diverse community.
