A Spring Friday and a Boston Housing Survey…can it get better than this?

Hello ONEin3 community.  Today is Friday and what is more fun on a Friday than surveys?

I know what you are thinking, “Kendall the intern, you are crazy because surveys aren’t even a little bit fun.” But you are WRONG my fabulous ONEin3ers…surveys are fun when they involve housing.

For example:

Are You…

Frustrated with your housing situation, living in your neighborhood, or your town/city

Loving your housing situation, neighborhood, and/or your town/city?

Looking to play an important role in shaping Boston’s future? (let’s be honest, who isn’t?)

If you answered “hell yes” or just a simple “yup” to any of these questions, we would love your input.

With your help, ONEin3 Mayor’s Advisory council will be able to communicate your needs, wants, and frustrations to the business, community, and political leaders that will be the ones shaping policy and developing real estate.

Pretty sweet…right?

So fabulous ONEin3ers…please take a moment to complete our survey:


Think this is totally awesome but don’t live in Boston? IT DOESN’T MATTER!!!!  Take it anyway…we’d love your input just as much as Boston residents.

Okay that is it ONEin3ers but before you go please pass this along to anyone and everyone so they can take this amazing survey.
