POTSDAM COMMUNITY SURVEYS TO BE DISTRIBUTED IN MID-TO-LATE JANUARY--The Village Comprehensive Plan Committee, developing a new document for land use and quality-of-life issues guidance that will be adopted in 2012, plans to have a survey it needs to gather community input sent out as college students and faculty away return from winter break. Committee member David Trithart said Wednesday "it wouldn't look good" to have the surveys sent out a little before Christmas as originally planned, as it would ignore the university demographic. Committee member Joseph Gallagher said Wednesday there needs to be a "media blitz" as the surveys come out so they will be responded to. About 2500 surveys will be sent out; the document will be prepared and compiled by the SUNY Potsdam-based Center for Applied Research.
