  1. A Resident Survey – than they asked us to share the survey with others that have roots in Big Sur. Honestly pretty much anyone will claim they have roots here, so this makes me ask is this really a Resident Survey? Than after reading over the Survey itself I noted on the Yes and No questions and the other portion that there is no included space to further explain our answers … so how will our answers be interpreted?

  2. I am not a resident, but I do have roots. I explained my relationship/roots in the space provided very early in the survey, and the very last question provides further space to explain anything further if need be.
