KEYSTONE COMMUNITY TASK FORCE SURVEY

 

2021 Keystone Survey - Summary of Results

The 2021 Keystone neighborhood survey results are in.  Over 100 surveys were turned in.  The following is an overview of the results.

Of those completing the surveys the average years spent in Keystone were over 30.  Most responding to the survey were over 60 years. The Keystone resident that has been here the longest time has been here for 76 years. There were also new residents completing the survey that have been here a year or less. The number of individuals per household averaged 2 people. 

In general people were satisfied with the parks and trails but would like to see people take better care of litter at these locations. The Spring Keystone Clean-up received high praise.  As far as weed control goes in the Keystone neighborhood many homes are well taken care of however some properties need more attention to lawn care including stuff left out in the yard.  Neighbors who use the pool like it but most had no opinion since they do not participate. There are complaints about traffic control in the area especially along Templeton and Keystone drive.  Sidewalks were considered average to good overall but there were complaints that some streets have no sidewalk which forces pedestrians to walk in the street.  Snow removal in general is now considered good.  Residents thought safety was good but there should be more policing for speeding cars.  Some neighbors thought there should be more streets with speed bumps for traffic control.  Crime in the area is a big concern such as cars being vandalized. 

Of all categories listed in the survey the Keystone Newsletter received the greatest appreciation. Police and Emergency response also had high marks as well as the Keystone trail.  The category that received most of the complaints was street condition.  Also weeds in neighbor’s yards, pets allowed to run unrestrained, barking and defecating in neighbor’s yards.  This was repeated in the category what neighbors are concerned most about Keystone.

Nearly every person who completed a survey said that they loved the neighborhood with its unique style housing, big yards with trees rather than the cookie cutter style homes with barren landscape.  There was plenty of praise for the friendly, helpful neighbors who watch out for each other.  Many mature residents completing the surveys would like to see new sit down restaurants established in the neighborhood.
