2022 Community Survey

On Thursday, April 28, 2022, the Unified Government Board of Commissioners received an update on the 2022 Community Survey Results from ETC Institute, a third-party provider that helps us facilitate our bi-annual survey. Please check out the video below for the overview of the survey responses. Please keep in mind, this was part of a much longer meeting which is why the presenter is a little rushed. We will be developing additional videos in the coming weeks to share survey data in greater detail.
