Planning for Extreme Heat Survey

My colleague Sara Meerow, PhD, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University, and I are studying how urban planners address extreme heat. Our goal is to survey planning professionals from a wide range of U.S. communities to better understand how extreme heat risk perceptions, current planning activities, and barriers to action vary across the country. This information will be useful for practitioners and researchers in the effort to create more extreme heat resilient communities.

This survey should only take about 10 minutes and participants will be eligible to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards upon completing it. Please take it, share it with your urban planning colleagues, and let me know if there is a network you are a part of that we can share the survey with!

Update: Survey closed.
