Share Your Opinions in a Community Survey

You could be one of 1500 households randomly chosen to participate in The National Citizen Survey, set to arrive in homes around September 16. The National Citizen Survey has been developed through a partnership with the National Research Center, Inc. to gather resident opinions across a range of community issues. If you receive the survey, please take time to answer the questions and return the form in the postage-paid envelope. The City wants to hear from you!

If you are not one of the randomly selected households that receives a paper survey in the mail, you will have an opportunity to take the survey online at Look for a link to the survey under the “Newsflash” section on our homepage. This will be available starting October 14.

Survey results will become a powerful tool to help improve service delivery as well as identify clear priorities in strategic planning and budget discussions. The data collected through the surveys will be presented to the Coon Rapids City Council in the beginning of 2017.
