The Town of Erie is partnering with the National Research Center and the International City/County Management Association to conduct the 2013 Town of Erie Citizen Survey. The Citizen Survey is designed to better understand our citizens’ thoughts about a variety of issues including: quality of services & initiatives; quality of life; pace of growth; safety and community activities. This is the first year since 1995 that the Town has conducted this type of survey.
During the first week of April, 1,200 randomly selected Erie households were invited to participate in the Citizen Survey. A pre-survey postcard and two mailings of the survey were sent to each of the selected households. All randomly selected households were encouraged to participate and complete the survey. The final report with survey results will be made available to the public.
Information obtained through the survey will assist the Board of Trustees and Town staff in improving service delivery and identifying spending priorities. The Citizen Survey will also provide the Town with norms against which to compare our own results with the results of over 550 other community surveys across the country. The Survey has a margin of error of +/- 5%.

The sample of people selected is designed to be as representative as possible of the population of our Town, sending in copies would skew the sample and make the results less meaningful.
