The City of Pasco is seeking the input of the Pasco community for the “National Citizen Survey”, a biennial survey the City has done since 2005. The survey measures public opinion in eight critical areas of community livability. In each area, residents report perceptions about the quality of their community and related services, as well as their own engagement within the community. Survey results will be used in developing City Council goals and objectives for the next two years, and the survey gives a snapshot of what the residents of Pasco think are priorities.
The survey was mailed to a statistically-valid sample of households late last year. An online version (in both English and Spanish) is now available to reach a wider audience at http://bit.ly/pasco2019survey. The survey will be open until Friday, February 7.
In addition to the standard survey questions, the City Council included policy questions designed to gauge the opinion of the community regarding three particular issues:
Public Art: To what extent does the community support using public funds for the arts?
Housing: Should the City be doing more to support affordable housing?
Downtown Amenities: What type(s) of amenities would help bring people to Downtown Pasco?
The results of the previous survey from 2017 are available on the City’s website at www.pasco-wa.gov/979/National-Citizen-Survey.
