Survey - Ryders Woods, Safe?

The votes are in. The question: Is Ryders Woods safe for children?

Number of votes: 34
Yes 21 (61%)
No 13 (39%)

With almost 40% of respondents indicating that they feel Ryders Woods is NOT safe for children, this informal survey should indicate to the City and to the Police Department that work is needed to improve the safety of children in Ryders Woods.

It's pretty neat to have a wooded area in a town, an area where kids of all ages can go on foot and on their bikes. Where they can walk their dogs. When they can enjoy a pond and fish.

But it must be safe. Police alone cannot make it safe. Residents must help.

If you are in Ryders Woods (or anywhere) and see bullying, intimidation or any other suspected illegal acts, call the police immediately. Today almost everyone carries a cell phone. And, even you don't have one, there will probably be several within shouting distance.

Thanks to all for your participation!

I'm sure the police in a town of over 22,000 citizens will immediately jump at the chance to implement programs based on a survey of 34 people. What if the money has all been spent on speed trap lawn mowers?
