The Christian County Cares 20-15 Vision Plan Committee has released the results of the recent Community Perception Survey.
Just over 200 people responded to the survey that asked questions about safety, economic opportunity and other aspects of living in Christian County.
The results were mostly positive, including 90 percent of responders saying they are proud to live in Christian County. Vision plan director Yasamin Ausenbaugh says pride in community and a feeling of safety were positives that stuck out to her.
One area that wasn’t so positive was when residents were asked if they feel there are enough job opportunities in Christian County. Seventy-two percent said there are not enough jobs.
About 91 percent said they feel safe living in Christian County, 75 percent feel safe walking in downtown Hopkinsville, 90 percent feel safe walking in their own neighborhood and 67 percent feel safe allowing their children to play unattended in their own neighborhood.
Over half of respondents do not believe there are enough recreational activities for adults, children or families and 85 percent say they would consider recommending Christian County as a place to raise a family.
