The City of Kent is asking residents about City services including public safety, roads, parks and more. Resident answers, which will be anonymous, will help us better understand how residents feel about Kent as a place to live as we strive to meet the current and future needs of Kent residents. The City completed a similar survey in 2016.
To take the survey online now, visit KentWASurvey.com.
What is the purpose of the 2018 resident survey?
Results from the 2018 survey will be used to:
- Solicit feedback from the community to identify priorities and unmet needs of residents
- Measure perceptions about City services
- Encourage development of positive relationships between the City and its residents
- Reinforce positive community activities
- The outcomes can also be used to identify resident priorities and as part of the City’s budgeting and planning process.
The survey is hosted and managed by Northwest Research Group, an independent research firm.
