What improvements need to be made in Pensacola?

Pensacola city officials want to know what people in the area think needs to be improved.

They are calling people and asking them how to make the city better.
In the phone survey, you may hear questions like "Are you satisfied with the quality of city services?" and "Where should the city put more resources?"

Julie Pecchia says "There could be more services for the youth of Pensacola, more productive young services."

Bryant Liggett thinks there are too many potholes. He says "I don't know what they are going to do about the potholes but they are just everywhere. It is almost like Swiss cheese. You fill one and another one comes."

Patrick Elebash is renovating a downtown business and says he wants city improvements to continue.

He says, "I am young, I am 35-years-old. I have a family here and I plan to be here for a long time so I want to keep things looking good."
Pecchia says she has seen the city develop. "I mean you have Navy Point, you have East Hill, you have North Hill, you have Scenic Heights, and they are all going in different directions but good directions it seems. I have lived here for 20 years and have seen a lot of change from a little slow town to what it is now."

Elebash says the city's improvement is a team effort. "It is going to take everyone working together. It is going to take the city working, it is going to take private business owners working and it is going to take the general public helping."

The phone survey is going now until the end of July.
