The National Community Survey (formerly called “National Citizen Survey”) is a widely used method of measuring citizen opinion offered by the International City Management Association (ICMA) and the National Research Center, Inc. It is used to secure survey information related to general attitudes with a few opportunities for customized policy questions. City Council directed staff to initiate the survey in late 2015. Staff again administered the survey in late 2019 and again in 2022, and will continue to take the pulse of our community every three years moving forward.
The reports, available for download below, are used by City Council in setting priorities.
