Some possible questions for the city council include:

When did Camarillo develop a relationship with the company performing the survey?

How many residents will be surveyed, and will residents be allowed to review the questions before the survey is conducted?.

How is the sampling determined? If there is a flight path change being contemplated, are the residents under the flight path given a greater weight in the survey?

How will the city verify the survey will be random and include only affected Camarillo residents?

What information will residents be given regarding the number and size of jets, noise levels, air pollution levels and other effects of large jets over their homes?

Are there different expansion scenarios to allow those surveyed to answer from an informed position?

What statistical model is being used by the survey company?

Is this related to the Amazon expansion in Camarillo and Oxnard Plains?

Camarillo residents who have an interest in airport traffic and the expansion of the airport should express their concerns to the City Council.
