Brooklyn Park Survey Results Praise Quality of Life, Ask for More Code Enforcement
Brooklyn Park conducts a survey of 800 residents every two years. Overall, the remarks were positive. Eighty-eight percent of the people surveyed gave the city high marks for quality of life.
“Overall, I think the resident survey really verified the direction that we’re going as a community, and as a city,” said Brooklyn Park City Manager Jay Stroebel. “Really excited to see that support come through in the resident survey.”
The Morris Leatherman Company reaches out to 800 people of all different backgrounds to get an accurate sample size.
Brooklyn Park received high scores on things such as safety, the park system and overall city services.
Eighty percent of residents believed that Brooklyn Park is headed in the right direction, but the city acknowledges there’s still room for improvement. Residents say they’re interested in more restaurants and more job producing businesses.
Also, one big area of concern is code enforcement, especially when it comes to loud noise after 10 p.m.
“The loud noise after 10:00 was an area where they would like more code enforcement on,” Stroebel said. “So that’s something we can be more responsive to with our police department, our code enforcement group, trying to figure out how we can address that concern.”
The city council will officially hear the results of the 2019 survey during Monday night’s council meeting.
