The city is conducting its biennial survey which is mailed to 1500 households.
They say addresses chosen to participate will receive a notification postcard with the survey to soon follow.
People are encouraged to complete the survey and return it by mail, or complete it online.
It is an anonymous survey, and the final reports include geographic and demographic comparisons as well as benchmarking data with similar sized cities, the city says.
City Council will receive the results in November and a report will be presented during a work session.
The National Citizen Survey™ (The NCS™) was among the first scientific surveys to gather resident opinion on a range of community issues and has been used by more than 350 communities in 48 states. Communities using The NCS have reported that the tool improved service delivery, strengthened communications with community stakeholders, and identified clear priorities for use in strategic planning and budget setting. The NCS is the only citizen survey tool endorsed by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and the National League of Cities (NLC).
