Community’s Input Sought in Lompoc Needs Assessment Survey

There’s still time to provide input regarding unmet needs in the Lompoc community.

The City of Lompoc has developed and implemented a Citizen Participation Plan for prioritizing unmet community needs in keeping with requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Community members and nonprofit service agencies are invited to take a brief survey available on the city of Lompoc’s website through Sept. 30.

Those taking the City of Lompoc Needs Assessment Survey are asked to list their top five priorities, in order of importance, for the category of Human Service Activities and the category of Capital Activities.

Results of this survey will help determine which programs and projects are at greatest need of funding during the city's 2017-18 fiscal year, said Christie Alarcon, community development program manager for Lompoc.

“It’s important that we have input directly from our community members who will be served by and benefit from these programs and improvements. We want to focus on funding areas this coming year that will have the greatest positive impact in our community,” Alaracon said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
