Our post about National Geographic dubbing Baltimore “the heroin capital of America” made one thing clear: Baltimoreans have a lot of opinions about living in Baltimore. Luckily, we’ve found the perfect place for you to vent.
It’s time again for the city’s annual Citizen Survey, a poll that asks Baltimore City residents things like “How would you rate the cleanliness of Baltimore?” and “How important is rat control to you, on a scale of 1 to 10?” There are questions about traffic jams, vacant lots, graffiti, and public transportation.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says the results of the survey serve as something of a report card for the city, helping city agencies measure their performance and decide what needs extra attention. In other words, you’re being asked to complain, critique, grouse, and grumble. (I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you had some nice things to say, too.)
