A group working with FLY 314, the non-profit overseeing the possible lease of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, plans to knock on 100,000 doors to survey city residents about the airport.
The goal is to get 20,000 residents, representing all of the city’s wards, to answer a 23-question survey. The questions have not been made public, but there is an interactive map indicating where canvassers have been and how many doors they have knocked on in each ward.
LeJuan Strickland, whose company Metropolitan Strategies and Solutions is conducting the survey, said it’s designed to inform the public and seek input about airport privatization.
“People in the field are not leading the questions in any way,” he said. “They are objective. Their job is not to sway opinion.”
