This year, the National Citizen Survey will create an online survey open to all Palm Coast residents, in addition to mailing a paper survey to randomly selected households.
The following is a news release from the city of Palm Coast communications office:
The city of Palm Coast will soon be conducting its annual comprehensive citizen survey. Residents are asked to watch their mailboxes and, if selected to complete the survey, to please fill it out and return it as quickly as possible.
This year, 1,400 surveys from the National Citizen Survey will be going out, and they are expected to arrive in mailboxes around Nov. 3.
Residents are randomly selected to receive the survey, with representation from each of the city’s four districts. The survey process is anonymous.
In addition to the mailed survey that goes to a sampling of residents, National Citizen Survey also will be conducting an online version of the survey that will be open to all Palm Coast residents.
The online survey will be conducted in December; details on how to take that online survey will be announced at a later time.
The city of Palm Coast has been participating in the National Citizen Survey annually since 2002, but this will be the first time for the online component open to all residents.
The city uses the survey results to improve city services. Palm Coast’s results are compared to results from more than 500 other local governments across the United States.
The feedback received from residents is presented to the Palm Coast City Council and is used for strategic planning and to help city leaders set priorities for the next fiscal year.
