KIRKLAND, Wash. – The City of Kirkland today published its online biennial Community Survey to gauge community attitudes about the quality of life in Kirkland, satisfaction with City government services, and priorities for the future.
A phone version of the community survey was recently administered to a statistically valid, random sample of Kirkland residents.
All Kirkland community members, whether they live, work, learn, or visit Kirkland, are encouraged to take the online survey, accessible by visiting: https://www.research.net/r/KirklandCommunitySurvey.
For over a decade, the City has conducted a version of this survey every two years as part of its budget process. The results from both the online survey and the phone survey will be presented to the City Council in the coming months. The results will inform the Council about the community’s sentiments on various issues in Kirkland in preparation for the Council’s adoption of their 2021-2022 biennial budget later this fall.
“The City of Kirkland has a strong history of valuing input from our community and relying on feedback to help guide our decisions,” said Mayor Penny Sweet. “Like so many other municipalities, the COVID-19 pandemic has had major impacts on the City’s budget. The Council needs to hear from our community about what they value and how they feel about Kirkland as we look ahead to some of the hard choices confronting us in our next budget.”
The online survey will close at 12 pm on July 29, 2020. Results of past surveys can be found on the City’s website by visiting: http://www.kirklandwa.gov/depart/CMO/Reports/COK_Survey.htm
