Statistically valid surveys assist municipalities and elected officials to measure the diverse opinions of a broad range of residents in a community by collecting data to compare past benchmarks, gauging satisfaction levels, and better understanding residents’ vision for the future. This information helps cities to improve service delivery and can provide guidance for budgeting and decision-making.
2021 Resident Survey
As part of the efforts to make our community an even better place to live, the City of Lafayette conducted a survey designed to capture residents’ perceptions about City services, the City as a place to live, and priorities for the future. A select number of households were randomly selected to participate in the statistically valid sample. The Resident Survey was also available to the general public for participation.
Thank you to the community members who took time to share input by participating in the survey. Results from the 2021 Resident Survey were presented to City Council at the June 15 meeting.
