Canandaigua mails city planning survey to select residents ahead of citywide launch

Some Canandaigua residents were recently asked to fill out and return a survey ahead of the launch of a citywide survey set to be released in the coming weeks.

The five-page initial survey was mailed to a limited number of city residents to fill out either on paper or online. City Manager John Goodwin said a separate survey for all city residents will debut in the next few weeks, according to Finger Lakes Times.
