Make your voice heard: Take the City’s annual community survey

What do you think about living in Sacramento? What City services and programs do you use most? And how can they be improved?

The City is once again inviting residents to take its annual community survey and share their thoughts on a variety of topics including public transportation, parks, housing options, health services and more.

The survey, which is managed by the City Auditor’s office, also asks residents for feedback about specific issues facing their communities.

The results are presented to the City Council each year for use in policy and budget decisions. Past results can be viewed here.

“The City of Sacramento appreciates and values the great diversity of our residents,” said City Auditor Jorge Oseguera. “It is in this spirit that the City wants to hear broadly from our community to learn exactly how they feel about our services and where opportunities for improvement may exist.”

Because the City has administered the survey for several years now, it is able to build upon past results and “identify trends and patterns to help the City adjust to changes in public sentiment,” Oseguera said.

The survey is open for a two-week period from March 25 to April 8 and can be completed online. Responses are confidential and no identifying information will be shared. The survey can be translated into more than 100 languages and takes around 15 minutes to complete.

Earlier this year, 5,500 randomly selected households were mailed the survey to ensure the City would receive statistically significant data. The survey now is open online to anyone who would like to share their opinions.
