City of College Station to Conduct Citizen Survey
Posted Date: 4/30/2012 12:00 PM


Complete the Online Survey

The City of College Station’s 2012 citizen survey will start arriving in some residents’ mailboxes this week. The City Manager’s Office plans to use the survey to assess and prioritize a wide range of services and needs.

Any College Station resident – regardless of whether they received a mailed survey – is welcome to complete the online survey. Responses are limited to one per household. The confidential survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.

“The results of this survey will help us responsibly and effectively plan for College Station’s future while identifying and prioritizing our current needs,” City Manager David Neeley said. “We genuinely value our residents’ input, but we haven’t formally surveyed them in several years. For us to compile accurate information, we need a high level of participation.”

Administered by Fort Worth-based National Service Research, the surveys are being mailed to 8,000 randomly selected households. Survey participants will rate various city services, quality of life issues and community characteristics. Completed surveys will be accepted through May 21, with the final report released in June.

The city is paying $9,250 for the survey. National Service Research, which conducted College Station’s last survey in 2003, has a long history of administering surveys across the state.
