City of Rochester

News Release

(Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018) – Mayor Lovely A. Warren is asking members of the community to participate in the National Citizen Survey to provide input on how City government is serving residents and their views about the city.

“We urge those who receive a survey to fill it out and let their voice be heard,” Mayor Warren said. “This input will help us as we make plans for our resources and see how we compare with other cities.”

This is the first time the City of Rochester has participated in the National Citizen Survey, which was among the first scientific surveys developed to gather resident opinions on a range of community issues. It has been used in more than 350 jurisdictions across 46 states.

The survey includes questions about quality of life, local policies, demographics and ratings for government services and use of services. Once the data is collected, it will provided to the City to help make comparisons with similar cities.

The City is working with the National Research Center Inc. to mail out and to review the individual survey results, which will remain confidential.

The survey will be mailed to a select group of 2,000 city households. Postcards will go out today to notify survey households of their selection. The actual survey will be mailed on Oct. 16. Survey recipients are asked to respond promptly.

A draft of the results will be shared with the City before the end of the year, with a final report due in January.
