2009 LGA Survey Results

The Lake Gaston Association Board has been working to fulfill our mission to "identify lake issues affecting our members and pursue resolution with the responsible organizations."

 

In our efforts to serve our members in the community as the "Primary Voice on Lake Issues," we polled our members for input to help the LGA with future actions. The Questionnaire was mailed & emailed to 1,351 households & businesses. The questionnaire was available on-line for our members and non-member public. We received 358 responses for a Response Rate of 26.5%.
