It is my privilege to present to you the results of the 2017 Town of Erie Community Survey. This scientific, statistically valid survey was conducted to provide you and your neighbors an opportunity to rate your satisfaction with the quality of life in the Town, the community’s amenities and satisfaction with local government.
I am pleased to share the Citizen Survey reports that: 94% rate Erie as an excellent or good place to raise children - a rating higher than in comparison communities nationwide ranking #54 out of 355. 92% rate Erie as an excellent or good place to live and 88% of residents rate their overall quality of life just as positively.
In a continuing upward trend, three quarters of residents positively rate the overall image, or reputation of Erie and the overall appearance of Erie. This is an increase of 11% when compared to 2015. About 7 in 10 residents positively rate the overall sense of community in Erie. 90% would recommend Erie to others and plan on remaining in Erie for the next 5 years.
Residents give positive ratings to the overall economic health of Erie. In fact, Erie ranks #1 when compared to 25 other Mountain Region communities in this same category.
