Town plan phone survey begins next week

As part of the process of updating the town’s Plan of Conservation and Development, there will be a phone survey conducted next week.

Phone calls are expected to occur between Monday, July 22, and Saturday, July 27. Participants will be randomly selected and may receive a call on either their landline or cell phone.

The caller ID will display “GreatBlue Research” and/or will come from prefix 860-740-400*. If no one answers, another Ridgefield telephone number will be randomly selected. The survey has protocols for gender, age group and neighborhood to help ensure a sample which is representative of the community.

The survey questions have been designed to help the Planning and Zoning Commission better understand issues of concern to Ridgefield residents and potential strategies for the future. The results of the survey will be integrated into the Plan of Conservation and Development which is slated for adoption in 2020. The current town plan is available on the town website.
