City of Fairfax Community Survey

The Center for Social Science Research (CSSR) conducted a survey of businesses and residents in the context of the Livable Fairfax: 2035 Comprehensive Plan. This project involved the design and implementation of a multi-mode (online, telephone and mail) data collection, yielding a representative sample of 863 resident surveys and 85 business surveys. Survey items addressed knowledge and attitudes regarding the planning process, and specific issues related to housing, transportation, city services, and city demographics, as well as any other concerns of city residents and business owners. Findings were presented to members of the planning staff, the Fairfax Planning Committee, and the Fairfax City Council.
