Slide 14

Many voters incline toward the term “natural areas” to “open space.” SEATTLE FEMALE : To me “open space”…it could be a major parking garage, though “natural areas” to me implies that there is plants and creatures, the earth, not only an open range that you can look over. SEATTLE MALE: A parking garage is a “urban open space” so it’s just excessively non specific. [You ought to have] some other term in there to show that it’s a pleasant urban territory. ALBUQUERQUE FEMALE: I think “natural area” is the place you can go and unwind and nothing has been touched.

Slide 15

Voters progressively see their zone as developing “too fast.” Q 9 Generally talking, do you feel your nearby group is developing and growing too quick, is developing and growing too gradually, or is your group developing and creating at about the right pace, or don’t you have a sentiment on that?

Slide 16

Concern about development underlies support for area preservation. SEATTLE MALE : If we didn’t attempt to moderate area, we would simply keep on eating it up … even the territories where they put the greenbelts are substantially more important if developers have the capacity to fill them with houses, and the before you know it we don’t have the parks and we don’t have the trails and the greenbelts. SEATTLE MALE : There has been the greater part of the quick improvement … it’s simply been a proceeding with ice sheet moving over the geography and as opposed to leaving rock and ground up trees, it’s leaving houses and unused office parks and things of that nature that were abandoned in the moraine of flotsam and jetsam. ALBUQUERQUE FEMALE: [Land conservation] is looking ahead to the future and not permitting each square crawl of area that we must be populated and developed.

Slide 17

Voters are irresolute about government’s execution on preservation issues. Q 15/16/17 How great of work do you feel the is doing at securing water quality; characteristic regions; lakes, waterways, or shorelines; neighborhood parks; and untamed life living space: a phenomenal occupation, a great job, just a reasonable employment, or a poor occupation, or don’t you have a sentiment on this?

Slide 18

Conclusions: General Conservation Attitudes Voters view TNC and TPL pretty much as positively as they did five years back – notwithstanding the clamor inside of the Beltway. Protection issues for the most part stay center level attentiveness toward most voters – yet that doesn’t mean they aren’t essential. Worry about protection lays on worry about development: voters see monitoring area as the main genuine different option for more strip shopping centers, office structures and parking garages. Most voters are not hostile to development – but rather they do trust it has been “poorly-planned.” “Conservation” and “planning” ought to go as one. “Open space” does not evoke pictures of area that voters need to ensure yet “natural areas” is a great deal more distinctive and positive.

Slide 19

Conclusions: General Conservation Attitudes (Cont.) “Working” or “family” should dependably go before “farms and ranches.” Active utilization is a positive and is NOT expected. Furthermore, farming area is excessively dry and not reminiscent, while working scenes means ZERO. “Neighborhood parks” is THE expression – NOT “urban open space” (respondents considered surrendered parts or black-top parking garages) nor just “parks.” “Neighborhood” infers open utilize and access (and incidentally, “playgrounds” is expected so no compelling reason to say it twice). “Trails” can’t be accepted as an expression that encompasses diversion. Including “hiking, biking and walking” before it makes a fundamentally more positive feel. “Green space” in the dry West can infer water-swallowing yards and be a negative.
