Laredo Speaks/Habla Laredo Web Survey Ends July 30
Access to an on-line community survey assessing Laredo's quality of
life will come to an end Friday, July 30 at 6 p.m.
The survey is located on Texas A&M International University's web
site, at www.tamiu.edu
Dr. Michael Patrick, director of Texas A&M International University's
Texas Center for Border Economics and Enterprise Development, which has
directed the survey, said response has been heartening.
"We've been impressed by the responses gathered in face to face
interviews, from social and civic groups and major employers and in our
on-line survey. We will be entering the data throughout August and beginning
our analysis in September," Dr. Patrick said.
The survey, dubbed "Laredo Speaks/ Habla Laredo: A Community Survey"
is part of the city's 250th anniversary celebration. It provides a forum
for Laredoans to share their perceptions of the Gateway City's quality
of life and suggest what Laredo's future quality of life should include.
Data yielded from the survey will be presented to community- based discussion
groups who will develop an appropriate plan of action and recommended
Funding partnerships including The Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau,
the Laredo Development Foundation and The Laredo Morning Times
assisted "Laredo Speaks/Habla Laredo."
