2023 Community Survey
The City of Montrose conducted the 2023 Community Survey as a tool for the city to gauge how well our community is doing compared to past city surveys and to other communities around the region and nation. Data gathered from the survey will provide valuable information about citizen satisfaction and help city leadership better plan, prioritize, and improve services and programs.
Survey Participants & Accuracy
In August of 2023, the official survey questionnaire was mailed to a randomly-selected group of Montrose households with an option to complete an identical online version of the questionnaire. Based on the number of surveys that were completed, the survey results have a 95% level of confidence with a precision of at least +/- 4.8%.
Contents of the Survey and How the Data Will Be Used
The survey asked participants to rate their satisfaction with the city’s primary services. Some questions in the survey prompted participants to prioritize the city’s actions. The survey results will influence decisions that will be made about the future of Montrose, including the city's focus on services to improve and priorities for future projects and community issues.
Individual survey responses were confidential and results were processed and analyzed by an independent survey company, ETC Institute, that was also responsible for randomly selecting Montrose households that received the survey questionnaire.
