SUN CITY CENTER — Residents in Kings Point are happy about where they live. Really happy, according to a recent community survey.

Conducted by a marketing professor at the University of Tampa, the independent survey showed that the majority of those who responded say they are satisfied with life in Kings Point.

In fact, more than 78 percent of respondents agreed that they would live in Kings Point if they could do it all over again. And more than 82 percent said they would recommend Kings Point to a friend.

Residents appreciate the safety of the gated community as well with more than 64 percent of respondents strongly agreeing that they feel safe in Kings Point. Less than 2 percent disagreed.

The survey, of which almost half of those who received it responded, is part of a community effort to determine who the residents of Kings Point are and identifying their wants and needs.
