The City of Asheville wants your thoughts on local government

Have opinions on local government and want your voice to be heard? Well, you’ve got a new chance to speak out. The City of Asheville is working with Polco/National Research Center to see what residents think about its work.

The National Community Survey asks questions about your local activities, quality of life, transportation, wellness, recreation, arts + culture, and community — among many other topics. Most of the 34 questions are multiple choice, rating quality, importance, or your support for various civic areas or City of Asheville initiatives and programs. It should only take about 18 minutes to complete. Once the survey closes, the City will share the results online and will use them to inform planning and budgeting.

A few residents were randomly selected back in December to complete the survey and were notified by mail — if you were one of them, you shouldn’t fill out the online version.

The survey is open now through Monday, Jan. 22. You can complete it in English, Spanish, or Russian.
