Community groups to assess quality of life in Sangamon County

Community organizations want to know what you think, and they will begin a telephone survey on Monday to ask.

The University of Illinois Springfield Center for State Policy & Leadership, the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln and the United Way of Central Illinois have joined to conduct the 2013 Sangamon County Citizen Survey. It will ask questions in nine areas in an attempt to assess the quality of life in Sangamon County.

The survey will be conducted every two years for the next 10 years, said Ashley Kirzinger, director of the University of Illinois Springfield Survey Research Office.

“We’re hoping it will help local leaders have better insight into the views of Sangamon County residents,” Kirzinger said.
