The purpose of this survey was to determine the strengths and weaknesses in the regulatory processes that relate to construction and development in Prince William County. In its overall approach and focus the 2004 survey largely replicated the project conducted in 2000. However for the 2004 project the County decided to add a counter exit survey to the project as a third component. This was an on-site survey of permit runners residents and other cus-tomers at the counters pertaining to zoning building permit land development permit building plan intake watershed and the fire.
303 customers were interviewed after their visit to one or more of four counters located at the McCoart Building as well as those who had visited the Fire Marshal's Office and the Watershed Office.
