DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — More than 2,100 people out of the nearly 19,000 living in Durant responded to the city's perception survey.

"We asked open-ended questions about what are the opportunities you see for Durant, what are some barriers, or some issues you see we can work on," said Durant City Manager Lisa Taylor. 

The city will host a special City Council meeting on Monday to share the results, and residents are encouraged to attend. 

"They had their opportunity to voice their concerns or their opinions throughout the survey, and I think they should just follow through with the whole process,"  Taylor said. "Show up for the meeting, respond to the information that's given."

TJ McReynolds filled out the survey because she wants to see better roads in Durant. 

"We can stand up and say, 'You know what we want to hear and what we want done,' and they'll listen to us, and they will listen to us," McReynolds said. "You got to stand up; you got to say what you think."

Although the survey is one step of the process, there's plenty of work to be done to help shape the future of Durant. 

"UCA will give us their report, telling us, prioritizing goals for our community, and the next step after that, we will invite the public back to round table discussions about each of those prioritized goals," Taylor said.

The special City Council meeting will take place at 6 p.m. Monday at George Washington Elementary School.
