They need your help… take the survey below! (takes 2 minutes)

Mike Manzella writes: “We would like to thank everyone who has taken our survey so far. We have over 175 responses! However, we need some more responses in order to ensure the results are statistically significant. Paper copies of the survey were left at multiple residential, commercial and community locations in the Southwest, but we have had little luck collecting many physical surveys. If you live, work or even drive through Southwest Hoboken, we would really appreciate hearing from you. This is a really important aspect of our design project and we can use the results give the city some helpful tools to decide which projects to select in order to make Hoboken safer and less congested. Take the survey online and please spread the word!”

Stevens Institute of Technology students Mike Manzella and Andy Kaplan are working on a “Senior Design Project” – which is a Southwest Hoboken “Traffic and Safety Design Improvement Plan.”

They told Hoboken411 “As part of the project we are looking to survey residents, business owners and other stakeholders in southwest Hoboken to determine the importance of several different factors to the community.” And added “The responses given will be used to create an economic decision model to evaluate different design alternatives for the southwest. We are working closely with the city on this project, particularly with Dawn Zimmer, the councilwoman whose ward our study area is located in.”

Help these guys get an “A” on their project by taking the survey below!

[quote comment=”143728″]”2. Relieving traffic congestion is important in my community.*

Who could disagree? Me! I answered “strongly disagree” because this means “widen every road” to politicians but “keep the traffic out of town” to me.

Good thoughts, though….[/quote]

However, widening roads is not the the cure to relieving congestion since it leads to induced traffic.
