The 2017 Citizen Survey:
If You Received It, Please Complete It by April 1!
The Town of Davidson is surveying a randomly selected pool of Davidson citizens to gauge how we are doing as a town government. The survey, administered by The National Citizen Survey™ (NCS), was developed by the National Research Center (NRC) to provide a statistically valid survey of residents’ opinions about the community and services provided by local government.
This month, surveys were mailed to 1,500 randomly selected Davidson residents all over town. Recipients can either fill out the mailed survey and mail it back to the NRC or go online to complete the survey by April 1.
“The goal is to get citizens’ feedback to help the town set benchmarks for tracking quality of service provided to residents and assist the board of commissioners in making decisions that affect our community,” said Town Manager Jamie Justice. “We encourage our citizens to participate if contacted. If you’ve already completed it, thank you!”
