In 2021, the Four Lakes Task Force (FLTF) hired Public Sector Consultants (PSC) to survey all property owners within the Four Lakes Special Assessment District (SAD) to understand property owners’ dam-related preferences and concerns as well as their willingness to pay for an assessment to rebuild the dams and restore the lakes. In 2022, the FLTF asked PSC to conduct a follow-up survey of Four Lakes SAD property owners to determine whether opinions and sentiments had changed. This effort was especially important because the state committed $200 million toward rebuilding the dams, significantly reducing any potential capital assessment. Since that survey, the FLTF provided additional information to property owners on potential operating assessments and continued a robust communication campaign. The 2022 survey was used to measure the impact of those communications on property owners’ understanding of the current situation and future plans to rebuild the community.
