Palm Coast - The City of Palm Coast will soon be conducting a comprehensive citizen survey. Residents are asked to watch their mailboxes and, if selected to complete the survey, to please fill it out and return it as quickly as possible.

This year, 1,500 surveys for the National Citizen Survey (NCS) will be going out, and they are expected to arrive in mailboxes between Oct. 30 and Nov. 7. Residents are randomly selected to receive the survey, with representation from each of the City's four districts. The survey process is anonymous.

In addition to the mailed survey that goes to a sampling of residents, NCS also will be conducting an online version of the survey that will be open to all Palm Coast residents. The online survey will be conducted beginning in late November; details on how to take that online survey will be announced at a later time.

The City of Palm Coast has been participating in the NCS since 2002. Currently, the City conducts the NCS every other year, with the City conducting separate surveying on its own in the off years.

The City uses all survey results to improve city services. With the National Citizen Survey, Palm Coast's results are compared to more than 500 other local governments across the United States. The feedback received from residents is presented to the Palm Coast City Council and is used for strategic planning and to help City leaders set priorities for the next fiscal year.
