RE: Community Survey
What are the water-related assets and needs for the Point Reyes Station? As a member of the Point Reyes Station community, you are invited to participate in an anonymous on-line survey to help answer this question.
Why conduct a survey? This is part of a grant from the State Department of Water Resources to support small communities with their water resource planning and decision-making. The results of this survey, along with community discussions, can be used to request follow-up funding for specific a water/wastewater project.
The survey, which takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, includes questions about what is working and not working for Point Reyes Station water and wastewater. This is a follow-up to our March 25, 2019 community meeting where residents began identifying their questions and concerns. There will be another community meeting Wednesday, June 5th at 6:00 p.m. at the West Marin School, 11550 Shoreline Hwy, to discuss the results of this study.
A draft narrative on water-related assets and needs is presented below. This is the first step in creating a community water story and provides background for the survey. Please read the narrative before you complete the survey. Also, send me your comments, stories, and edits to the draft water story. We want to make sure the narrative reflects your community.
Hard copies in English and Spanish will be available at the Point Reyes Library, 11431 State Route One, Point Reyes Station next week. The survey can also be taken on-line at the library. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or would like me to send you the narrative and survey directly.
Please take this survey as soon as possible (preferably before May 29) so we can summarize results before the June 5th meeting.
