A survey asked thousands of Baltimoreans about their priorities for the city. Here’s what they said.
Last fall, city residents themselves got the chance to weigh in. More than 5,000 filled out a survey designed to capture their top priorities ahead of the 2020 mayoral and City Council races. The majority of responses came from in-person outreach efforts targeting historically under-counted populations. The rest came from people who took the 35-question survey online.
The survey is part of a project co-funded by Open Society Institute-Baltimore and the T. Rowe Price Foundation called Blueprint for Baltimore. Organizers plan to ask hopefuls for city office to respond to survey-takers’ priorities at a series of nonpartisan public forums, then monitor whether those who are elected honor their commitments.
