The City of Pasco will be 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 key areas of community livability. In each area, residents report their perceptions about the quality of their community and related services, as well as their own engagement within the community. Survey information will used in developing City Council goals and objectives for the next two years. As in previous years, the printed version will be mailed out to a statistically-valid sample of City utility customers starting November 13. There will be an additional online version (in both English and Spanish) to reach a wider audience starting around December 11.
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:
Code Enforcement: This question seeks to gauge the community’s interest in seeing more, less, or about the same level of Code Enforcement in Pasco.
Fire/EMS Facilities: The City will need to build/relocate fire stations to meet the increase in population; this question asks respondents their level of comfort in paying for new fire facilities via a property tax bond.
City Recreation Facility: The City has been considering if residents support the construction of a community recreation center and asks what type (or types) of facility residents would like to see in Pasco.
“The City values the input from the community via the survey,” said Pasco Mayor Matt Watkins, “as it will help guide the Council’s goal-making process and gives a snapshot of what the citizens of Pasco are thinking.”
The results of the 2015 survey are available on the City’s website at www.pasco-wa.gov/979/National-Citizen-Survey
