Milton is committed to understanding its citizens’ viewpoints while being responsive to their wants and needs. To that end, the city council recently approved a $19,700 agreement with Policy Confluence, Inc, known as Polco & National Research Center, to conduct a Milton Version of the National Community Survey.

The city has used the National Community Survey several times in its history for this purpose, as well as to measure how Milton residents compare the city to other local governments nationwide on a variety of commonly assessed metrics.

Most of the survey consists of several pages of standard questions from the surveys of all participating communities. In addition, the Milton version will add 3-5 multiple choice questions and one open-ended question, all specific to the city.

Postcards will be sent to about 4,000 Milton residents showing them how to participate in the survey online.
