Regional Role

This future-splitting question explores the Regional role. The question was:

“Do you want to see Falmouth remaining a separate small town or being more absorbed into the larger Portland metropolis (as a suburb or bedroom community)?”

Survey participants were presented with a continuum from 1 to 10, with a range as follows:

1 = Separate small town
10 = Part of the Portland metropolis

Key things to note:

  • The responses skew strongly to the ‘Separate small town’ end of the continuum’.
  • Over 60% of responses selected the extreme end of the continuum (Score = 1) which suggests this is a strongly felt sentiment or perspective.
