Notes:
Job Fair respondents not included in statistics that break down by diversity because it is unknown how many "Caucasian" responses were actually "East European"
East European immigrants do not tend to catagorize themselves as "East European" but by their ethnicity; in uncontrolled surveys this will be a source of difficulty.
All "Caucasian" responses from the Russian language surveys were combined with "East European" because they all were from this group. All Caucasians were East European
"East European" and "Russian Speaking" will be difficult to use as diversity groups because they may tend to identify by their ethnicity, not former nationality.
New immigrants may be any of a variety of ethnicities depending what part of the former Soviet Union they came from.


Native Language Survey Findings
Generation 1 immigrants tend to not use computers and will not complete online native language surveys
Generation 1.5 immigrants will tend to be more computer literate and if they take an online survey, it will be in English
Generation 2 are very computer literate and will take most surveys in English

To outreach Gen 1 and 1.5 immigrants, you need to provide paper copies of surveys at their gathering places, with a bilingual aide or translator.
Gen 1 will usually prefer native language surveys
Gen 1.5 will be willing to attempt English if it is a simple survey with little writing

Why do you think Vancouver is changing for the better or for the worse as a place to live and                         What is the most important problem that Vancouver city government must try to fix within the
work?                                                                                                                 next five or six years?
Actually, I just moved here a month ago. So in the last month, Vancouver has not changed.                             control/plan for growth


because it has very new schools. Vancouver is a very beautiful city. More security, much better                       Divest from private businesses, like the hotel downtown, prevent future horridly wasteful projects like the
                                                                                                                      walking bridge over HWY14, establish strong permanent position that light rail will NEVER come to Vancouver,
                                                                                                                      reduce traffic congestion particularly wrt I-5 bridge and 164th Ave./HWY14 areas

because more people are coming every day to Vancouver and they need a place to live and work and study                I think the city government is doing an awesome job in maintaining and making the necessary changes
                                                                                                                      required to accommodate the increase in population. i am impressed that there is a greenway environment
                                                                                                                      within the city. Continue the good work
because Vancouver is between Oregon and Seattle                                                                       Improve existing roads and neighborhoods, limit sprawl, slow traffic down, tell PDX to fly their crappy planes
                                                                                                                      over their own city.

I think that the amount of employment is decreasing and there are not many new companies to supply the
numbers of employment needed to supplement for the decrease in jobs.

it is getting better; the city is building up, pedestrian sidewalks are being built, parks are improved, the city
seems prettier



It looks like a group of people who really care and are excited about making Vancouver a better place are here
and looking for more of the same as well as changes already going in the right direction.

More opportunities for jobs as more employers move into the area. The population is growing and jobs follow
as more and more services are requires. We have a great area to live in and people who visit are often
enchanted and want to move and share this with us.

personally, I will say that the security in the city helps a lot to prevent crime, it makes people safe and able to
work, the city has done an excellent job in providing a lot of business opportunities, providing work and
comfort for the citizens

rapid, poorly controlled growth coupled with a lagging employment market is driving the cost of living up but
average buying power down

I would love to see quality higher education opportunities available in SW Washington. Moderation in housing
prices and traffic congestion would also be nice. A return to somewhat more comfortable lot sizes in new
developments is also desirable, although that runs counter to lower housing prices (sigh). More opportunities
for high earning jobs in Vancouver would also be desirable so fewer people would have to go to Portland each
morning. I'm not talking family-wage, subsistence jobs, but real career-quality opportunities.
I'm dreaming about… that every bar and club will be closed

Keep a separate and unique identity...in other words, do not try to be Portland or Beaverton. Try to capitalize
on the uniqueness of the Hispanic/Russian families that have moved in. Keep down town and the old houses
up so are safe and inviting. Keep good police action so people feel safe. Sometimes it is so discouraging to
hear the negative news about events in Vancouver.

My hopes for Vancouver are that it continues to give various opportunities for different populations to get

That I can avoid being taxed right out of my house and Clark County. The latest assessments are due out
November 19th, so we will soon find out how bad the damage will be next year...
That our education services available would match and meet the needs of the community: ESL, adult learning
services, emotionally/behaviorally challenged youth... all these issues could be adequately served to stunt
generational poverty, delinquency, and illiteracy.
That we can revitalize the economy, while retaining the unique history we have. That we can regain a feeling
of community, rather than the fragmented mess we have now because of economically selective annexation
that draws borders around and excludes residential neighborhoods.
To continue to be the beautiful city more and more people want to visit and inhabit. To keep our charm for
generations to come.

I came in 2000. During that time I liked living in Vancouver. In the present time I began to live very well, separately from all, secure for all. Thank you. Only one wish for the Eastern European

I can see a lot of construction and fixing for improvement of the city.                                                                                                            Asian

I live at home, in the city of Vancouver, for us are created all conditions, we see the exit for our security, home construction betters the living conditions        Eastern European

I think it is focused in one part of the city                                                                                                                         Hispanic
I think it is getting better because many houses are being built.                                                                                                     Eastern European

I think its better because more people are getting involved in helping each other.                                                                                    Hispanic
I think that the amount of employment is decreasing and there are not many new companies to supply the numbers of employment needed to supplement for the decrease in Asian
jobs.
I think the city is doing a good job of keeping up with the growth and development within the city                                                                    Asian

It is rapidly becoming a bedroom community with no large businesses. This has negatively impacted the tax base, and forces residents to work in Oregon. Large companies         Eastern European
keep moving and/or closing, and are not replaced with similar size businesses.

I think that the problem is in the incorrect free development of children in the schools. Children do whatever they want,         Eastern European

I would like to see the use of personal fireworks reigned in from the current 8 days to just the 4th of July. I would also like   Eastern European

the potential fire hazard of projectiles landing on unintended neighbors roofs.

I see that our generation moves towards degradation. Divorces multiply, living without marriage, living without             Eastern European
fathers and in the sum, a society not capable of working, falling apart of morals and values, godlessness

I   see that the economy is falling                                                                                         Eastern European

I would like to see our communities work for the better of resolving drug issues so our children will have a safe place Eastern European

What are your hopes or dreams for our community?                                                                         Primary Diversity
I would like to see people help each other and help clear the debris to make it a more clean and welcoming               Asian
atmosphere...examples: pick up litter off the street even if its not your own, hold the door open for another person,
give a positive compliment to another person everyday, and pass your smile and laughter around!

I would like to see Vancouver maintain and improve connection to local and local rural areas. I think the farmer's       Eastern European
market and other things are wonderful
I would like to see Vancouver promote development in the downtown core, promote the extension of light rail from         Eastern European
Portland to become better linked to the region, and increase environmental protection. I would like to see higher
residential density encouraged, and more public improvements in existing neighborhoods.

I would love for the community to have all of the opportunities like Portland, but still keep a smaller town feel.       Eastern European

I would love to see and be apart of a community that employees African American                                          African American
I would LOVE to see Light Rail extend into downtown Vancouver, through Uptown Village (Main/Broadway couplet),           Eastern European
with Park and Rides at 39th and Main. We need to attract suburban (Salmon Creek, Ridgefield, etc) commuters and
make it easy for them with a Park and Ride NORTH on Main, not stopping at Mill Plain or Clark College.

I would love to see quality higher education opportunities available in SW Washington. Moderation in housing prices No
and traffic congestion would also be nice. A return to somewhat more comfortable lot sizes in new developments is
also desirable, although that runs counter to lower housing prices (sigh). More opportunities for high earning jobs in
Vancouver would also be desirable so fewer people would have to go to Portland each morning. I'm not talking
family-wage, subsistence jobs, but real career-quality opportunities.

If the rulers and the people turn to God, the city and country would be protected from enemies and tyrants.              Eastern European

I'm dreaming about… that every bar and club will be closed                                                               Eastern European
in my opinion an ideal community is one that has a very low or no crime rate with non-discriminating citizens, with a    No
lot of parks and recreational centers, a good school system, and high job marketing
in no time this city will be a great and wonderful place                                                                 No

Keep a separate and unique identity...in other words, do not try to be Portland or Beaverton. Try to capitalize on the   Eastern European
uniqueness of the Hispanic/Russian families that have moved in. Keep down town and the old houses up so are safe

Portland is the cultural center of this area, not a lot you can do, but the efforts downtown are a good start. Parks, farmers markets, city           Eastern European
centers, all are giving the area a nice feel, but the east (mall area/164) feels lifeless and tacky. Centers in several areas should follow what is
starting around Ester Short.

That's not your job. City government has to maintain a minimalist perspective to avoid becoming a burden on the citizens and businesses it            No
serves. You should do just as much as required to provide infrastructure, police, fire, water and an equitable legal framework and then do
absolutely nothing more. The city is to be built by the citizens, the government is but one tool necessary to accomplish that end.

This is a hard one because I live outside the city limits, but I'm still part of the Vancouver Community. One thing I have noticed is that the city Eastern European
sometimes gets the blame for things the county or other agencies do that people don't like. I think the city should be more proactive in
communicating with the public about what you do versus what other have screwed up. I don't think the city does a really good job at
communicating a lot of the time. Just read all those negative letters to the editor in the Columbian that critisize city investments and programs.
The city never answers those, to set the record straight. For example, some people are still pissed off about the convention center, but it looks
to me like its a success, and the city should be making those naysayers eat their words. Instead, the same old arguments come up time after
time, and the city says nothing. Defend yourselves! Tell people your success stories! But also be honest with people when things don't go well--
don't sugarcoat things, or try to spin things to sound good when they aren't. But mostly, the city should be out there talking to people, telling
them what is what, using the internet, town meetings, tv, direct mail, email, whatever else you can come up with to get your story out. Don't
wait around for the Columbian to do a story, you never know when they might stab you in the back.

We moved here from Lake Oswego four years ago to restore a beautiful historic home in Shumway. We have since been very active in two                Eastern European
neighborhood associations and have testified about critical development issues in front of the council several times. My voice was never

  SM31     This is a hard one because I live outside the      d   Caucasian         1
           city limits, but I'm still part of the Vancouver
           Community. One thing I have noticed is that
           the city sometimes gets the blame for things
           the county or other agencies do that people
           don't like. I think the city should be more
           proactive in communicating with the public
           about what you do versus what other have
           screwed up. I don't think the city does a
           really good job at communicating a lot of the
           time. Just read all those negative letters to
           the editor in the Columbian that critisize city
           investments and programs. The city never
           answers those, to set the record straight. For
           example, some people are still pissed off
           about the convention center, but it looks to
           me like its a success, and the city should be
           making those naysayers eat their words.
           Instead, the same old arguments come up
           time after time, and the city says nothing.
           Defend yourselves! Tell people your success
           stories! But also be honest with people when
           things don't go well--don't sugarcoat things,
           or try to spin things to sound good when they
           aren't. But mostly, the city should be out
           there talking to people, telling them what is
           what, using the internet, town meetings, tv,

           markets, city centers, all are giving the area a
           nice feel, but the east (mall area/164) feels
           lifeless and tacky. Centers in several areas
           should follow what is starting around Ester
           Short.

               then I feel like a part. Sometimes it seems
               like the city/county is run by a "clique" and
              the leaders are not really known to individual
               citizens. Keep trying to invite participation
                and keep all meetings and decisions in the
              open so there is not a sense that those in the
               know are gaining financially from decisions
                           they make for the city.

                  and distinctive. Reduce influence of
