SLRC has collected community feedback on reservoir uses and concerns for over 20 years. It has specifically commissioned formal surveys, both in 2009/2010 as well as in 2016.
Prior to the design and construction of the Meadow Park, SLRC undertook to seek additional community input by way of two surveys, sent by mail to randomly selected addresses in both 2009 and 2010. You can find the 2009 SLRC survey results here, and the 2010 SLRC survey results here.
In 2016, SLRC commissioned its largest and most comprehensive community survey. It sent 4-page color printed surveys to 3,400 randomly selected residential addresses within the official boundaries of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council (which contained over 14,000 such addresses). More than 800 responses were received. A preliminary summary of some of those results may be viewed here.
The complete official report on the 2016 Community Survey is available to read or to download as a PDF (13MB) here.
