The Richmond City Manager’s Office is appealing to city residents to complete a biannual community survey where they can offer feedback to help inform the city’s future direction. The deadline to complete the survey is 5 p.m. Mon., Oct. 25.

The community survey aids the Richmond City Council in setting its spending priorities and establishing a benchmark of city service delivery, according to Irene Lozano, executive assistant to City Manager Laura Snideman. It’s open to all Richmond residents and is available in English and Spanish.

The City of Richmond enrolled in the National Research Center’s (NRC) National Citizen Survey (NCS) program in January 2007 to conduct a resident survey to achieve the aforementioned goals, per Lozano.

“We want to hear our residents’ perspective on City services, measure satisfaction and to help plan for Richmond’s future,” stated survey organizers in their outreach.
