Last month the City of Snoqualmie launched a comprehensive community survey to gather feedback from residents and assess City services provided to residents. The survey was sent to randomly selected households with a postcard invitation to participate. The postcard contained participation instructions, an online survey link, and was then followed by a paper copy survey for residents who preferred that option.
With the random-sample survey well underway, the City is now launching the open-participation community survey from Oct. 3 – Oct. 17. Residents whose households were not selected for the random-sample survey are encouraged to participate in the open-participation survey and share their opinions on topics including housing, transportation, outdoor recreation, education, and civic engagement. The survey will also help the City allocate resources to best meet the community’s needs and wishes.
The open-participation survey contains the same questions as the random-sample survey that launched in September. Prior to taking the survey, participants will be asked to provide their email address and zip code. This information helps ensure participants’ residency and that the city only hears from each person once. Residents who provide an email address will also be able to receive notifications of any future survey or polling efforts the City conducts. Responses are anonymous. Personal information is not shared and is securely stored with Polco, the independent consultant conducting the survey on behalf of the City.
Take the City of Snoqualmie Open-Participation Community Survey today!
**Please note: Residents whose households were selected for the random-sample survey last month are asked to complete that survey - either online or via the mailed paper survey - and not take the open-participation survey. **
Both surveys close on Oct. 17. The City will receive a comprehensive report of survey results in November of 2023. Community members will be able to view the report in public meetings and online.
Snoqualmie Community Survey
The City worked with Polco, an independent consultant, to develop its community survey. The National Community Survey (NCS) allows the City to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against similar communities.
