Improvement of Kent's most basic infrastructure, streets and sidewalks, is a major concern of residents, according to a recent phone survey conducted city wide.
Kent City Manager Dave Ruller released results of a phone survey conducted this summer on Friday.
The majority of respondents, 90 percent, said Kent is an "excellent" or "good" place to live, according to a summary of the results.
Akron-based firm Center for Marketing and Opinion Research conducted the survey. The survey results are attached to this article.
Ruller said previously the data will be used in planning discussions during the next six to nine months.
Hopefully it's a new beginning for great things in Kent, so now is the time to be charting what comes next and where do we go from here," Ruller said. "Answering that question starts with hearing from Kent residents and the survey is an initial effort to begin that community conversation."
