Citizen’s Survey Now Available to All Kingman Residents-

KINGMAN, Ariz. – The City of Kingman is conducting a comprehensive quality of life survey that is now available to all Kingman residents. The survey link is https://polco.us/swzkbx, with a deadline of January 11, 2022.

The mail-in survey was delivered to a random selection of 2,700 residents to take part this year – 1,200 were given the option to reply via a survey link or paper survey, and 1,500 were only able to reply through a survey link.

In the past, the city has worked with independent consultant, National Research Center, Inc. of Boulder, Colorado, to develop the survey. The instrument, known as The National Community Survey™, allows the City of Kingman to compare results, and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country. We will also be able to compare results from past surveys. The survey includes questions about quality of life, important characteristics of our community, services provided by the City of Kingman, and priorities for the future.

 

About the National Community Survey™ (The NCS™):The NCS (https://info.polco.us/custom-surveys) was among the first scientific surveys developed to gather resident opinion on a range of community issues, and has been used in more than 350 jurisdictions across 46 states.

Communities using The NCS have reported that the tool improved service delivery, strengthened communications with community stakeholders and helped leaders identify clear priorities for use in strategic planning and budget setting.
