STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-August 30, 2022-Just 20 minutes of your time will lead to a better city for everyone! That is the idea behind the 2022 Community Survey which will soon be arriving to randomly selected residents in Steamboat Springs.
“The information received from the survey is vital to understanding the community’s values and vision for the future,” said Special Projects/IGS Manager Winnie DelliQuadri. “A small amount of your time will pay huge dividends for the community as we chart the future course on important matters facing us all. Thank you in advance for helping create a better city!”
Like the last time the survey was carried out two years ago, two thousand residents have been randomly selected to participate in this year’s tally. To make the survey statistically valid compilation of information, surveys will be mailed through the US Postal Service to the randomly selected community members.
While initial postcards are being mailed this week, survey questionnaires, available in English and Spanish, will be mailed on September 7 and show up in mailboxes about a week after that. Residents are asked to fill out the survey and return them 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, early and late September, 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 47-question survey, which addresses quality of life, community characteristics, housing, city services and long-term funding, recreational activities, tourism impacts, and environmental initiatives; 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 December 2022.
