Dunedin: Shaping Our Future Together
Article published on

We all try to foresee the future and make decisions today for the betterment of ourselves, our family and our community of tomorrow. Major shifts in the economy, climate, and an aging population affect our city. They occur at a pace and scope which may seem daunting and create challenges. Our children will live in the world we are structuring today. And we, no matter what age, will be occupying that future too.

Whether you are young, middle-age or elder, the Age Wave focus group for the Dunedin Committee on Aging (DCoA) needs your help to Shape Our Future Together.

We are not asking that you go to a meeting. You donít even have to leave your home.

All you have to do is click on a Web link and take a survey. The Committee on Aging has created an opportunity for your voice to be heard and have your opinion count simply by clicking on a link and filling out a future-focused online survey: www.surveymonkey.com/s/DunedinSurvey.

In an historic collaboration the City, through DCoA, teamed up with USFís sociology department to launch this citizenís online visioning survey.

Dr. Sara Green, an associate professor in the USF Sociology Department, is lending her expertise to design the survey along with input from the DCoA and Dunedinís Department of Planning. USF sociology department students will compile the anonymous results and present them to the Planning Department and City Commission.

Yes, you will help assist your community to prepare for the future, but you also will help yourself.

Thinking about what life will be like for you 10 years from now may help you create a better future for yourself. The questions pertain to housing, health and wellbeing, care-giving and care-receiving, economic security, food security, environment, transportation and community life.

Thatís why it is called Shaping Our Future Together! Individual and collective choices are how we shape the future. Participants cannot be identified and their answers are strictly anonymous.

Good communities that are healthy, vibrant, safe, intergenerational, active, ecologically sustainable, and elder and youth friendly donít happen by accident. They happen with citizen input, expert planning and the ability to shift with changing times and conditions.

Be a part of this historic collaboration. Access the survey. Go to: www.surveymonkey.com/s/DunedinSurvey or go to the city website: DunedinGov.com and click ďMore NewsĒ Thatís it: E-A-S-Y.

Survey opens Sept. 22 through Oct. 12. If you donít have a computer paper copies will be available at City Recreation Centers and Public Library.

Assistance is available to help you fill it out online at the Hale Activity Center and the Dunedin Library. Library help is available on Tuesdays and Sundays.

The Survey Link is www.surveymonkey.com/s/DunedinSurvey or www.DunedinGov.com. Click on MORE NEWS.

Michael E. Whalen is the Dunedin Committee on Aging Age Wave chairman.
