2021 Community Survey Results

Background

In early 2021, the City of Brighton contracted with the National Research Center (NRC) Polco to conduct the National Community Survey (NCS). The last time the City conducted a survey was in 2014, and prior to that, in 2007. The goal of the scientific citywide survey was to gather resident opinion on a range of community issues, from the overall quality of life to the delivery of city services and prioritization of projects. 


The survey collection period was from July 15, 2021 - September 2, 2021. Survey methods included a mailed invitation or survey form delivered to randomly-selected households or via an open participation period in which all Brighton residents could take the survey through a public online link. 


The City will use the results of this survey to assist in decision making for future city services, policies and projects.


Thank you to everyone who took the time to take the survey!
