Operators hoping for 1,000 ideas to make Bray better
THE PEOPLE of Bray are speaking about how to ‘Make Bray Better’ and the results are expected to be in by the end of the month when operators of www.makebraybetter.com hope to have reached their target of 1,000 responses to the survey.
Mick Glynn, Cllr. John Ryan and Sarah Wray from Fine Gael are behind the survey which consists of 14 questions about issues important to the town.
The survey attracted some tonguein-cheek responses to an appeal from Mr. Glynn to answer the questions on his own social networking facebook site in January.
‘Blow it up,’ was one of the ‘hilarious’ comments. Mr. Glynn very quickly made it clear in an online that he in no way agreed with the opinion of the poster.
‘If you’ve got comments to help make Bray better, keep them coming. If you want to take a pot-shot at Bray, then I suggest you find a different forum,’ he wrote after the comment was reported on by the Bray People. ‘We need people to get involved,’ said Glynn. ‘To shape constructive ideas for the future.’
The confidential survey consists of 14 questions and takes a maximum of five minutes to complete.
Questions are wide ranging and are made up of a series of simple statements, from local transport, services, education, crime and welfare issues with options to expand and enter comments.
