The City of Summit recently received a grant from the Summit Area Public Foundation to participate in a comprehensive community survey which randomly samples a portion of the population, representative of the entire City. The purpose of the survey is to learn more about the experiences and preferences of local residents for a wide range of services.

Participating households have been selected through random, scientific sampling to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the survey results. Additionally, the response data is weighted statistically to reflect Summit’s proper demographic composition. Each selected household has received one survey. A reminder survey will be sent within a week, however, it is important to respond only once.

The City encourages residents to return the survey as soon as possible, with the goal of receiving the completed surveys by March 2, 2012; responses are completely anonymous. The survey is being administered by The National Survey Survey™. The results will be useful in assessing the level of citizen satisfaction with the delivery of services provided by the City and an understanding of what services the public
considers most important.
