2018 Fauntleroy Community Association Survey

Every two years, the Fauntleroy Community Association conducts a survey of over 3000 residents in Fauntleroy. We ask questions about curent issues affecting the Fauntleroy community, West Seattle, and Seattle as a whole. This allows us to understand what is important to our community and helps the board better focus on community concerns.
