Community Surveys

2021 community survey complete

Since 2011, the Town has commissioned a resident and business survey in each odd-numbered year.

For 2021's survey, the Town partnered with third-party research firm ComEngage (formerly Northwest Research Group).

The firm's work included a scientific study, in which randomly selected households were invited to participate, as well as a supplemental survey through which the entire community could provide feedback. Town-licensed businesses located in Town were also surveyed.

Data collection is complete as of March 17, 2021. Results are expected to be presented to Town Council in April.

  • Ratings related to the direction the Town is headed indicated continued concerns over growth; ensuring well-planned infrastructure for new development should continue as an area of focus
