2021 community survey complete

Since 2011, the Town has commissioned a resident and business survey in each odd-numbered year.

For 2021's survey, the Town partnered with third-party research firm ComEngage (formerly Northwest Research Group).

The firm's work included a scientific study, in which randomly selected households were invited to participate, as well as a supplemental survey through which the entire community could provide feedback. Town-licensed businesses located in Town were also surveyed.

Results were presented to Town Council in May 2021. Watch a video of the presentation. Or, view the 2021 survey (PDF).
