What Is the Community Survey?

Since 1997, Arvada residents have been rating their satisfaction with regard to quality of life, community amenities and local government via the Community Survey. The survey functions as a consumer report card by providing residents the opportunity to rate their satisfaction with their quality of life, community amenities and local government. The survey gives residents an opportunity to provide feedback to the City government on what they believe is working well and what is not, and to communicate their priorities regarding community planning and resource allocation. The survey invites your opinions about how the City uses tax dollars, how safe you feel in the City and your neighborhood, and how you perceive Arvada as a place to live, among a number of other areas of interest. This information is critical to the City's understanding of the current and future needs of Arvada residents, like you.
