In collaboration with the Salt Lake City Parks and Public Lands Department, researchers at Utah State University created a tablet-based survey instrument to gather feedback from community members about a proposed green infrastructure project in the Glendale neighborhood at the "Three Creeks Confluence". The Confluence is where three urban creeks, Red Butte, Emigration, and Parleys, empty in to the Jordan River in pipes underground of the city. In addition to information about that specific project, this survey also gathered some broader community opinions regarding local parks along the Jordan River corridor. The survey was designed specifically for residents in the neighborhood surrounding the Jordan River and was implemented using iPads and a public-intercept convenience sampling methodology in publicly accessible spaces and public events including local parks, shopping areas, libraries, and community festivals. The Survey results are accessible for visualization at http://data.iutahepscor.org/surveys/survey/3Creeks.
