Residents have until Saturday to complete the city’s Taking Charge citizen satisfaction survey at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: satisfaction).
Paper copies are available by calling the mayor’s office, 402-441-7511. Randomly selected households received surveys through the mail. The survey is an opportunity for residents to provide feedback on local government services.
Residents are also encouraged to participate in the survey’s online discussion component at My Sidewalk, an update to the city’s MindMixer public engagement tool. At lincoln.mysidewalk.com, residents can engage with each other on topics covered in the survey.
Survey topics include transportation, parks and recreation, economic development, neighborhood life, public safety, libraries, healthy behavior, sustainability and trust in local government.
The city has partnered with the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center since 2008 on the Taking Charge process, which has included surveys and public meetings.
Results are expected by the end of August.
