SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii - How important is garage storage to you' Do you feel there is adequate parking for your family vehicles'

Residents living in Army Hawaii Family Housing (AHFH) communities will have an opportunity to weigh-in on these items and more when the annual Military Housing and Lodging Institute (MHLI) survey is mailed this month.

The MHLI survey is a tool used by the Department of the Army's residential communities initiative to help assess military housing. At U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii (USAG-HI), the garrison commander implements and manages the MHLI survey.

Residents will be asked to assess housing services such as policies, move-in processes, office hours, and routine service requests, as well as property assets.

"It's important for residents to let us know what services are valuable to them as well as where there might be room for improvement," said Col. Matthew Margotta, commander, USAG-HI.

"Our partnership with AHFH gives us an opportunity to better support families living in our communities, so I encourage everyone to complete and return the survey," he said.

Survey results help the garrison and AHFH make more informed decisions about their communities, so they can improve the quality of life for Soldiers and families.

Residents who have questions about the survey can call an AHFH community center for assistance.

The MHLI survey is conducted at more than 40 installations during April and May.
