Community Survey

Your community survey should paint a vivid picture of your community to somebody who is unfamiliar with the area. Windshield surveys are based on what you observe when you walk or drive through the community and should not be strictly based on pre-existing knowledge. Be specific in your observations. For example, instead of “there are three churches in my community,” name the churches that you see and describe their denominations.

(Note: not all components of a windshield survey are included in the assignment).
