    Quality of Life Committee Update

    The PCA has partnered with the Canisius College Marketing Research Team to gauge resident opinions on quality of life issues in our neighborhood via the survey linked below. If you are a Parkside resident over the age of 18, please consider helping us with this effort by taking this brief survey. Your responses will help us gain a better understanding of how we can address problems in our community, as well as provide insight on what types of methods or tactics the PCA should use to make the neighborhood a safer place for all.
