The City of Denton conducted the 2022 Community Benchmark Survey using the National Community Survey (NCS) tool to assess residents' opinions on different aspects of the quality of life in Denton. Questions were designed to measure ten facets of community livability: Safety, Mobility, Community Design, Utilities, Natural Environment, Parks and Recreation, Health and Wellness, Education, Arts, and Culture, and Inclusivity and Engagement. City staff will use the results from this survey to understand the priorities of Denton residents, and to find areas that need improvement whether through increased outreach, education, funding, or operational enhancements.
The Business Survey is an online survey to assess local business owners' or managers' perspectives of the community. The survey tool tracks business expectations for the coming year, identifies services and policies that would assist the success of local businesses, describes characteristics of local companies, and tracks business owners' perceptions of the quality of current services.
