The CAFD conducted a name change survey and asked citizens from throughout the entire region their opinions over the last two months.  Respondents have replied in support of the District's current name by over 90%.

We wish to thank everyone who took the time to complete this survey.  Input from our communities, and stakeholders throughout the region is a large part of our success as an organization.  You can find the survey results attached to this post.

Thank you.
