LIVINGSTON, NJ — In order to reach the maximum number of people from the Livingston community, Livingston Vision 20/20 has opted to post a new mini-survey survey every month rather than distributing its traditional community survey in hopes that this will encourage residents to take between two and four minutes each month to voice their opinions on crucial matters.

The latest survey, focusing on emergency communications and alerts, ends on Jan. 31. It asks a few multiple-choice and checkbox questions about use of Livingston’s Swift911 Emergency Notification System for individuals who have and who have not signed up.

“When you participate in these mini-surveys, your responses can help us create a better community for all,” the committee states about this new system for collecting feedback. “If you've ever wanted to let the town know what you think, this is your chance.”

Surveys are available in hard copy at Livingston Town Hall through the clerk’s office window or online through a personal computer, smartphone or other device with Internet access. Those who do not have access to a computer can also take the survey online at the Livingston Public Library (10 Robert Harp Drive) or the Livingston Senior and Community Center (204 Hillside Avenue).

With more winter weather remaining a possibility this season, everyone who lives or works in Livingston is reminded to register for Swift911 emergency notifications via the township’s website.

Those signing up can elect to receive critical information by text message, phone call and/or Email.

About the Livingston Vision 20/20 Monthly Mini-Surveys

The volunteer Livingston Vision 20/20 Committee has been conducting a community survey every four years since 2003.

According to the committee, past survey results have led to improvements such as the introduction of the Livingston Express Shuttle and construction of the skate park. This year, the committee is taking a new approach to the community survey.

The hope is that the short survey format will allow for quick, topic-focused community feedback throughout the year. Each month, a different brief set of questions specific to one area will be posted online at www.livingstonnj.org.

The committee encourages all members of the Livingston community to share their experiences, priorities, and interests by responding to these surveys throughout the year.

In November and December 2019, the committee sought feedback about public safety and business development in Livingston. Previous months’ surveys remain open and can be accessed BY CLICKING HERE.

Residents are also encouraged to follow “Livingston Township, NJ” on Facebook and @Livingston_NJ on Twitter to find links to the monthly surveys and other announcements, news and information.
