Lake Forest residents satisfied with city

A survey of Lake Forest residents about city government and services indicates they are overwhelmingly satisfied.

City Senior Communications and Marketing Analyst Jonathan Volzke says when they were asked how to improve the city, many didn’t have answers.

He says 13 percent of residents polled would like to limit growth and development in the city, while at the same time, ten percent expressed interest in the city attracting new restaurants and stores.

He says six percent of residents would like traffic congestion reduced. And five and half percent of residents stated no changes were needed in the city and everything is fine.

When residents were asked whether the city should limit parking on street sweeping days, which the city currently doesn’t do, half indicated “yes” and the other half said “no.”
