City of Kingman to conduct quality of life survey
KINGMAN – The City of Kingman is conducting a comprehensive quality of life survey. A mail-in survey will be delivered next week to a random selection of 2,700 residents to take part this year, according to a city news release. A total of 1,200 will be given the option to reply via a survey link or paper survey, and 1,500 can only reply through a survey link.
The survey link is original to each household and can only be filled out once with a deadline of Jan. 11, 2022.
The survey will be available later to all resident through an online survey. When the online survey becomes available, the link will be posted to the city’s website for everyone to participate.
“We’re very excited to be conducting this survey, for only the third time, after pausing last year,” said City Manager Ron Foggin. “This survey will help city team members and council to identify priorities for the community and improve the quality of life.”
For the past few weeks, the city has worked with independent consultant National Research Center, Inc. of Boulder, Colorado, to develop the survey.
The instrument, known as The National Community Survey, allows the City of Kingman to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country.
“We will also be able to compare results from past surveys. The survey will include questions about quality of life, important characteristics of our community, services provided by the City of Kingman, and priorities for the future,” the city wrote.
