The City of Norcross is asking residents to participate in The National Citizen Survey™ (The NCS™). The survey is designed to provide a baseline of how the city government is serving residents, to gauge perceptions of the city and to make comparisons with peer cities.
The city contracted with National Research Center, Inc. to participate in The NCS™, an instrument that was developed in partnership with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) in 2001 to provide cities with a low-cost, high-quality method to conduct market research.
The survey centers on community livability and includes questions about the quality of life in the community, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services and resident use of services.
A random and scientific sample of 1,500 households will receive invitations to participate by mail and their confidential responses will be weighted and analyzed.
If you are one of the households that receive the invitations and do not have internet access you may come up to City Hall on August 9th and we will have computers available to use. Please bring your invitations with you and ask for Sonya Isaac.
