A public survey seeks input from Mountlake Terrace residents and business owners as the city measures the success of various programs and services.
This community satisfaction survey generally is conducted every two years. In November, a paper version was mailed to 2,700 households to create a statistically valid sample. Now a second version is online and open to everyone at https://polco.us/mountlaketerrace2021.
The mailed survey closes Jan. 7, and the online version ends Jan. 10. The City Council will review the results in the coming weeks. The city appreciates the time spent on these surveys, which provides valuable feedback on how to allocate resources.
This process is unrelated to the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) relief funds. In recent weeks, the city also asked community members to complete a short form providing guidance on how to best use nearly $6 million in federal pandemic aid. The ARPA survey closes Jan. 2, and the City Council is scheduled to receive an update at the Jan. 3 meeting.
The Lakeview Trail is one of several popular walking paths in the city. The community satisfaction survey helps guide decisions about how to allocate city resources.
