The Forest Preserve District surveys residents every few years to help master planning efforts, budgeting and other processes.

“The opinion of Kane County residents is really crucial to our success as a district,” said Executive Director Monica Meyers. “The preserves exist to serve our residents, and this survey is a tool for us to know whether we’re meeting our residents’ needs, and what the community’s priorities are. Our hope is that as many households as possible take the time to share their ideas and opinions with us.”

In prior years, surveys were conducted via mail and telephone. This year, in support of the district’s commitment to environmental sustainability, the district is solely conducting the survey online. This will save paper, ink and postage, as well as time, Meyers said.

The 2016 Resident Survey will remain open through year-end. To access the survey, see the “News at the District” section of the district’s home page at
