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 2022 Community Survey at www.kirklandwa.gov/communitysurvey.
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 2023-2024 biennial budget later this fall.
“Understanding our community’s needs, wants, and priorities is critical for the work we are doing to develop the budget for the next two years,” said Councilmember Jon Pascal. “We want to know what our community members value and how they feel about Kirkland as we make important decisions about the funding of city services and programs into the future.”
The online survey will close at 12 p.m. on July 20, 2022. Almost one thousand community members participated in the last biennial online survey. Results of past surveys can be found on the City’s website at www.kirklandwa.gov/communitysurvey.
