County: Biennial Community Survey Closes Jan. 15


Los Alamos County, in partnership with its contractor National Research Center (NRC), began its biennial Community Survey in early December with a mailing to 2,500 randomly selected households throughout Los Alamos and White Rock.

Jan. 2, the Open Participation survey began, allowing all Los Alamos County citizens to share their feedback. The Community Survey closes for everyone at 11:59 p.m. Jan. 15. All paper copies of the survey must be received by then.

Residents who received a mailed invitation to participate are encouraged to take the survey online this week using the link included on the postcard or letter. Officials do not recommend mailing paper surveys at this point, as they may not be received before the survey closes.  

The Open Participation period is extended to all citizens and businesses to augment the responses from the valid sample mailing. The Open Participation survey is available here.

The survey aims to provide a comprehensive picture of citizen perspectives on community livability. Los Alamos County Council and officials use the results from the survey to help guide strategic planning efforts to identify priority goals and dedicate necessary resources to improve services, facilities, and initiatives.
