After receiving over 1,700 responses to the STP 5 & 6 online public input survey, we’ve completed our review of the data and comments. Thank you to everyone who took the time to the share his or her opinion! The feedback provided will be instrumental in our decision on how to proceed with the proposed designs.
For a refresher on the STP 5 and 6 proposed designs, read this previous post.
Summary of Online Survey Results
Total Number of Respondents: 1,727
Total Number of Comments: 2,473
Below are the results by proposed design. For each design, the survey respondent was provided with a choice of “Supportive” or “Not Supportive.” At the end of the survey, respondents were asked to provide their address. This allowed us to isolate responses from individuals who identified themselves as a Memphis resident. Interestingly, doing so increased the “Supportive” responses to each design by a couple percentage points.
