Return Your Citizen Survey Today


There is still time to complete and return your 2017 Town of Erie Citizen Survey! Please take a few moments to fill it out. Your participation in this survey is very important. Your feedback will help the Town of Erie Board of Trustees make decisions that affect our Town. Thank you for your participation!

On Monday, April 10, the National Research Center began mailing the 2015 Town of Erie Citizen Survey to 3,000 randomly selected Erie households.

A couple of things to remember:

  • Your responses are completely anonymous.
  • In order to hear from a diverse group of residents, the adult 18 years or older in your household who most recently had a birthday should complete the survey.


NEW THIS YEAR! An opt-in online survey will be available on the Town’s website to all residents beginning May 8, 2017. If your household did not receive a survey in the mail, you are encouraged to participate in the online survey.  The online survey option is intended only for residents who do not receive a hard copy of the survey in the mail.  Residents who receive a hard copy of the survey are asked to complete it and return it by mail.  

The final report with survey results will be made available to the public this summer.

The 2017 Town of Erie Citizen Survey is designed to better understand our citizens’ thoughts about a variety of issues including: quality of life; quality of services; safety and community engagement. Information obtained throucgh the survey will assist the Board of Trustees and Town staff in improving service delivery and identifying spending priorities. The survey results will serve as an important measure of the Town of Erie’s performance and will include the benefit of comparability with other jurisdictions.

This is the third year the Town of Erie has contracted to participate in the National Citizen Survey (NCS). The previous surveys were conducted in 2013 and 2015. The NCS is a service of the National Research Center and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). The NCS has been designed to complement the work of ICMA’s Center for Performance Measurement. The 2017 Town of Erie Citizen Survey will have a statistically valid margin of error of +/- 3%. With this margin of error, you may conclude that when 60% of survey respondents report that a particular service is “excellent” or “good” somewhere between 57% and 63% of all Erie residents are likely to feel the same way.
