Over the next several weeks, Queen Creek residents will be randomly selected to complete a survey that will help influence the future of the community.
“The Citizen Survey really is the council’s report card,” Queen Creek Mayor Julia Wheatley stated in a press release. “Not only does it help us gauge our resident sentiment, it also helps us make informed decisions for the community that we love. I really do look forward to it every other year because the information is so valuable – I encourage residents to take the time to participate so we can have a continued understanding of community priorities.”
Selected residents can participate in the survey either by phone or online. The town has contracted with the firm WestGroup Reaseach to conduct the survey, the release stated.
The town stated that the survey will take about 15 minutes and includes questions about town services, programs, customer service and communication. Demographic questions such as age, gender, income level and ZIP code will also be asked. The survey can be completed in Spanish.
“Participants will not be asked to provide their name, address, social security number or bank information. All responses will remain confidential; information will not be used for any other purpose or shared with other agencies,” the release stated.
Residents selected to take the survey online will receive a mailer containing an access code. For phone participation, residents will be prompted with calls to both land lines and cell phones. Calls will be made during the daytime, in the evenings and on weekends to reach residents at convenient times, the release stated.
To ensure an accurate sample that statistically represents the population of Queen Creek, 400 surveys will be completed, the release stated. The survey information will then be analyzed, and the findings will be presented at a future town council meeting.
