Hello People of Santa Ynez!

I am David Hatton, a student studying tourism at Leeds Metropolitan University in England. As part of my studies, I am writing a dissertation on Michael Jackson's touristic legacy, and as part of that I want to develop a clearer understanding on the debate surrounding Neverland. Through this I want to gather a range of stakeholder views, neighbors, fans, the state to hear their opinions on Neverland potentially opening up to the public as a visitor attraction, whether they are for or against the project and how they have expressed these views.

I would be so very grateful if the local people of Santa Ynez could fill out a short survey for me on their opinions, the survey is available to take online here:

All responses will be kept completely confidential, and all results will be used solely for the dissertation. If you have any further questions surrounding the ethics of this research or the survey itself, feel free to contact me at [email protected] or you can contact my university (Leeds Metropolitan University).

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I look forward to analyzing your responses.

David, I have just filled in the survey for you now, as a (fairly near by) resident of Neverland. I hope other people do it for you too. Good luck with the research.

I think this is an interesting study David, I myself would be against the project and have outlined this in the survey. I believe the chaos it would cause would be horrific for the town, but I know others would embrace the prosperity it would bring. It is an interesting debate and I wish you well with your research.
