Citizen Survey available online for all residents

Every two years, the city conducts a citizen survey to get residents’ feedback and evaluate how the city is doing. The 2020 survey was mailed to select residents, however, we want to hear from everyone, so the online version is now available for any resident to fill out.

“The city has been doing the survey since 1992 and it is put together with the input of City Council, staff, and the city’s consultant, the National Research Center,” said Assistant City Manager Chris Lindsey. “One of the city’s goals is to create a vibrant, inclusive and engaged community, so we encourage everybody to fill out the survey online, if they didn’t receive one in the mail.”

The survey consists of multiple choice questions, one fill-in-the-blank question and demographic information. Topics covered include community safety, the quality and importance of services, quality of life, and challenges facing the city. New this year is the write-in question, “What do you think is the single most important thing the City of Westminster could do to improve the quality of life for its community members?”

“The feedback we receive advises City Council when they do their strategic planning process and it informs the city’s budget process,” said Lindsey.

Responses are confidential and will be reported in group form only. 

The online survey is open until Friday, Feb. 21. Survey results will be posted on the city’s web site in late April.

The results of previous surveys are available on the city’s web site: www.cityofwestminster.us/citizensurvey.

Also new this year is a digital sounding board. All residents are invited to join the panel and provide feedback to the city on a range of topics such as parks, roads, policing and more. After signing up, the city may email you about once a month for your feedback about city initiatives, services and new ideas. Your email is kept private and will not be used for any other purpose.
