2023 Community Survey

The City of Montrose is excited to invite the community to participate in the 2023 Community Survey. Data from the survey will allow the city to gauge how well our community is doing compared to past city surveys and to other communities around the region and nation. The data will provide valuable information about citizen satisfaction and help city leadership better plan, prioritize, and improve services and programs.

Survey Participants

In August, the official survey questionnaire was mailed to a randomly-selected group of Montrose households. Residents who received a survey questionnaire as part of the official survey group should return the form within seven days using the enclosed postage-paid envelope. Alternatively, participants can use the link shown in the survey cover letter to complete an online version of the questionnaire no later than Sunday, September 24.

Individuals who did not receive an official, mailed questionnaire are encouraged to complete an online version of the survey. Survey data from both official and informal survey participants will be analyzed. The opportunity to participate in the community-wide phase of the survey will remain open until Monday, October 2.

Contents of the Survey and How the Data Will Be Used

The survey asks participants to rate their satisfaction with the city’s primary services. Some questions in the survey prompt participants to prioritize the city’s actions. City leaders genuinely value the input that the community provides and hope that Montrose residents will take the 10-15 minutes necessary to complete the survey. The survey results will influence decisions that will be made about the future of Montrose.

Survey responses will remain confidential and results will be calculated by an independent survey company, ETC Institute, who is also responsible for randomly selecting Montrose households that received the survey questionnaire.

Survey Results

ETC will present the survey results to the City Council in October and the final survey report will be posted on the city’s website (CityofMontrose.org/Survey) following the presentation. View the final report for the 2016 Community Survey.
