County Launches Biennial Resident Survey on Quality of Life and More

The county has launched its biennial survey asking residents’ opinions on a variety of topics, including quality of life, county services and programs, facilities and amenities and more.

“I encourage all residents of Montgomery County to take this survey,” said County Executive Marc Elrich in a press release. “We want to ensure that the feedback we get is inclusive and we want everyone to have an opportunity to share their opinions on the services we provide.

“The pandemic required us to make some significant changes to the way we deliver some services,” he added. “This survey is one way for us to assess how we are doing, what people think of the changes we made, and identify areas for improvement.”

The 39-question survey is open to all resident 18 and older. Questions ask for opinions on neighborhoods, infrastructure, the county as a place to work, the design or layout of commercial and residential areas, safety and other issues.

In addition to English, the online survey is available in seven languages including Amharic, French, Vietnamese, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Farsi. The county also mailed 5,000 copies of the survey in those languages to randomly selected households to try to generate a more equitable sample.

The survey will be open until 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 17.
