STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-November 18, 2020-The 2020 Community Survey will soon be arriving to randomly selected residents in Steamboat Springs and a small group of second homeowners starting as early as this week.
“The information received from the surveys is vital to understanding the community’s values and vision for the future,” said Special Projects/Intergovernmental Services Manager Winnie DelliQuadri, who is managing the program. “Twenty minutes of your time will pay huge dividends for the community as we chart the future course on important matters facing us all.”
Like the last time the survey was carried out three years ago, two thousand residents have been randomly selected to participate in this year’s tally. An additional group of 500 second homeowners will also be asked for their input. In order to make the survey statistically valid compilation of information, surveys will be mailed through the US Postal Service to the two groups of randomly selected community members.
While initial postcards may have already arrived, survey questionnaires will be mailed on November 19, with a second wave sent out on November 30. Residents are asked to fill out their survey and return it to the survey company as soon as possible.
Each survey is registered to a specific address ensuring one survey per household. However, residents will receive two copies of the survey at different times, mid and late November, in case the first was misplaced. It’s important to remember, only 2,000 residents receive the opportunity to participate, so don’t wait to fill out and return your survey. Responses are anonymous and will be reported in group form only.
A community survey planning committee has been meeting for months to develop the 25-question survey, which addresses quality of life, housing, growth and development, city services and long-term funding, recreational activities, tourism impacts, parking, historic preservation, environmental initiatives and short-term vacation rentals; followed by demographic questions.
The survey provides a snapshot as far as what the community thinks is going well, what can be improved and how they believe the city should proceed forward on various matters in coming years. Results will be tabulated as well as compared to previous statistics and are expected to be released in early 2021.
