Online version of National Citizen Survey now open to Palm Coast residents: The City of Palm Coast invites all residents to take the City’s comprehensive citizen survey between now and Dec. 9. The online survey went live on Nov. 24. You can access the survey here. The online option is in addition to the regular mail-in survey conducted for the City by National Citizen Survey every other year. Earlier this fall, 1,500 surveys from the National Citizen Survey were mailed to randomly selected residents, with representation from each of the City’s four districts. Both survey processes are anonymous. The City of Palm Coast has been participating in the NCS since 2002. Currently, the City conducts the NCS every other year, with the City conducting separate surveying on its own in the off years. The City uses all survey results to improve city services. With the National Citizen Survey, Palm Coast’s results are compared to more than 500 other local governments across the United States. The feedback received from residents is presented to the Palm Coast City Council and is used for strategic planning and to help City leaders set priorities for the next fiscal year.
