Palm Coast - The City of Palm Coast invites all residents to take the City's comprehensive citizen survey between now and Dec. 9. The online survey went live today (Nov. 24).

The website is at http://bit.ly/palmcoast2017. The survey may also be accessed through the City of Palm Coast website at www.palmcoastgov.com - look for the "National Citizen Survey" button right on the homepage.

The online option is in addition to the regular mail-in survey conducted for the City by National Citizen Survey every other year. Earlier this fall, 1,500 surveys from the National Citizen Survey were mailed to randomly selected residents, with representation from each of the City's four districts. Both survey processes are anonymous.

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.
