Quick Survey on Community & Public Spaces - take a moment to fill it out?

Hi there,

I'm taking a quick (12 hour) survey that would help me on project I'm working on. Just a few questions, and if you could answer them I'd really appreciate it. I especially would like to hear from people who do not live in the United States... but anyone can take the survey and I am very thankful that you would be able to help me. Thanks!

A few questions:

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home?
2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night?
2b. If you are in the park "after hours," is it considered against the law? Will police show up?
3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home?
4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
-Park?
-Shopping Centre?
-Other?
5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do?
6. How often do you talk to your neighbors?

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community?
8. Where do you live? (City, Country)


That's it. Thank you!!

I'll bite, sorry, US based, though.

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home?

half a block, maybe 500 ft.

2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night?

Don't think so, still accessible at night.

Not to my knowledge, if you're dealing there, I'LL be the one calling the cops.

3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home?

Define shopping center, you mean, mall or shopping district? If the latter, two miles, tops.

4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
-Park?
-Shopping Centre?
-Other?

Park, or on the street.

5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do?

Some of them.

6. How often do you talk to your neighbors?

Whenever they're out and about.

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community?

A few questions:

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home? within 4 miles
2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Yes Is it "closed" at night? Yes
2b. If you are in the park "after hours," Sometimes I have ridden thru there. Is it considered against the law? Will police show up? Potentially, but highly unlikely as when I ride it's just on route - not to sit and drink or party.
3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home? I live in the city. Shopping abound. Shopping mall is probably 12 miles out.
4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
-Park?
-Shopping Centre?
-Other? At friend's house.
5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do? Nope. Even in a city, nope - prefer not too.
6. How often do you talk to your neighbors? Last neighbor was when I lived in my last house for 24 years and she was an honest to goodness beech from hell. She even rankled my 74 yr old mother who kept giving the @#$% benefit of the doubt and this woman still came back and stuck you in the back. Good riddance.

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community? 2, check out our homicide rate - and don't forget to look at the other city infractions too - we seem to have a city filled with bored, inept youngsters who are more concerned with gang activities - and it's not unheard of to have (like last weekend) multiple shootings that have happened on opposite end of th city but OH MY they are all related.
8. Where do you live? (City, Country) Rochester, NY


That's it. Thank you!!

I'll answer it both from where I live right now (SoCal) and where I used to live (Manila) if that helps...

2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night? Nope, open 24hrs.
2b. If you are in the park "after hours," is it considered against the law? Will police show up? Nope; it's just really, really dark and rather damp, as it's when they turn the sprinklers on.
3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home? If by shopping center you mean mall, less than 6 miles. If you mean a place with groceries, restaurants, drug stores and a few shops, less than a mile.
4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
-Park? No
-Shopping Centre? No
-Other? School, actually.
5. Do you know your neighbors? Some Do you know their names, and what they do? Only a few

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home?
There are public spaces fairly near by, but the closest real park is a few km away.

2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night?
Don't think so.

2b. If you are in the park "after hours," is it considered against the law? Will police show up?
Nope. There's noticeably less police control over this sort of thing here than in Canada.

3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home?
Nearest supermarket is a 3-5 minute walk. Fruit stand and DVD store even closer. The place I buy water and milk is about 30 seconds from my front door. There aren't really "shopping centres" in my area -- just stores.

4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
Restaurants

5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do?
Nope.

6. How often do you talk to your neighbors?
We say hello now and again.

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community?
7 -- pretty good. My neighbourhood is unusual in Shanghai in that it's fairly new, but is not made up of high-rises -- most are 8-storey buildings. So we get all the good plumbing without the huge impersonal apartment blocks. Unfortunately, I may have to move soon if my landlord sells my flat . The downsides of where I live: a bit noisy (though not unusually so for Shanghai), and I'd love to have more access to nature. Pollution is also an issue, though less than in Beijing.

8. Where do you live? (City, Country)
Shanghai, China

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home?
A ball park and equestrian center abut my property

2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night?
Yes, it is closed at dark or after the game

2b. If you are in the park "after hours," is it considered against the law? Will police show up?
Yes, after hours one is trespassing. No, the sheriff will not show nor do they patrol the park after hours

3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home?
7 miles

4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors:
-Park?
-Shopping Centre?
-Other?
Other--my house

5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do?
I know everyone who has been here more than 5 years, and most of them all of my life.
We have a new subdivision that branches off of my road, I know almost none of them. The subdivision is composed of mostly starter homes and I don't think any are locals, bedroom community for Atlanta commuters.


6. How often do you talk to your neighbors?
The farm owners, every third day or so. I steer clear of the subdivites. I've only been approached by one who wanted me to sign a petition wanting to ban the Catholic church from building on our road, she was afraid they would steal her children.

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community?
Farm life, eleven or twelve. Subdivision living would be less so, 5 to 7

8. Where do you live? (City, Country)
Walton County, Georgia, USA

1. How far away is the nearest public park from your home? Two blocks.

2a. Does this park have hours in which it is considered "closed"? Is it "closed" at night? That park, along with all the other parks (and the greenbelt!) in my town and the next town over, are closed from sunset to sunrise.

2b. If you are in the park "after hours," is it considered against the law? Will police show up? Yes, I got 'busted' walking on the greenbelt before the sun was completely up.

3. How far away is the nearest shopping centre from your home? About two miles.

4. Where are you more likely to meet up with your friends or neighbors: The bar

5. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know their names, and what they do? I know the kids across the street. I have met their mom, but I don't remember her name. I don't know any of my other neighbors.

6. How often do you talk to your neighbors? The kids across the street always ask to pet the kitty and the puppy, see the baby, and so on. They're the only ones I talk to.

7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, how would you rate the quality of living in your community? 7.

8. Where do you live? (City, Country) Wheat Ridge, CO
