2018 Citizen Survey

The City of Denton is conducting a survey to help City staff and Council identify priorities for the community and improve the quality of life in Denton.

This survey allows the City to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country, and includes questions about quality of life, important characteristics of community, services provided by the City of Denton and priorities for the future. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.

The survey closed Monday, October 15. Residents that received the mailed version of the survey are part of a randomly selected group of 1,600 households to be a representative sample of the Denton population, and should complete the mailed survey rather than the online survey.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact the City by phone at (940) 349-8433 or email at CMO@cityofdenton.com.

About The National Citizen Survey™ (The NCS™): The NCS (www.n-r-c.com/thencs) was among the first scientific surveys developed to gather resident opinion on a range of community issues, and has been used in more than 350 jurisdictions across 46 states. The NCS is a cost-effective survey of resident opinion and an important benchmarking tool that allows for comparison among communities. Communities using The NCS have reported that the tool improved service delivery, strengthened communications with community stakeholders and helped leaders identify clear priorities for use in strategic planning and budget setting. The NCS is the only citizen survey endorsed by the International City/County Management Association and the National League of Cities.
