Pulse survey to be conducted by CSM students next week
The College of Southern Maryland will conduct its next Pulse of Southern Maryland public opinion telephone poll from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 7-10.
The Pulse survey has been conducted during fall and spring semesters since 2008, surveying Southern Maryland residents on various issues and trends. CSM has provided the community with feedback and trends on subjects such as militar y presence in the region, health care, recreation, energy, transportation, Internet access, expectations for local elected officials, minimum wage, world events, and national security and safety.
For the fall semester, questions will focus on the presidential election and confidence in law enforcement.
CSM student volunteers will be making the phone calls for four evenings from the college’s La Plata Campus.
The college has earned recognition from the National Council of Marketing and Public Relations, District I for its work on this initiative.
The results of the survey are provided to local media for reporting in the Southern Maryland Newspapers.
CSM students interested in volunteering to conduct the poll can register at http://www.csmd.edu/about/pier/pulse/.

Residents asked to participate in parks and rec survey
The Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism encourages resi- dents to take the Charles County Land Preservation, Park, and Recreation Plan (LPPRP) survey about county parks and recreation facilities. The LPPRP is a comprehensive document used as a planning tool by local governments to protect natural resources and provide public parks and recreation facilities. To maintain eligibility for Program Open Space funding, the State of Maryland requires LPPRP be updated every six years. Charles County’s last LPPRP was completed in 2012.
