A study commissioned by the city of Fayetteville last fall offers a snapshot about how residents feel about various aspects of their community.

The National Citizen Survey, sent to 1,600 residents by mail and also posted online, asked people to rate such issues as safety, mobility, environment, economy, recreation, wellness, education, governance and community engagement. The city received mostly positive responses regarding housing, education, public safety and government services, but got lower marks related to alternative transportation, traffic flow, employment opportunities and cultural activities. Survey results have been compiled into several reports detailing answers and noting the demographics of the respondents.
