2020 Citizen Survey

The City conducts a city-wide citizen survey every three years. The next survey will be conducted in 2020. If you receive a survey, please complete it by the provided deadline. 

This random-sample survey aims to determine areas for improvement and provide benchmarking for City services and customer service. The City of Winchester uses the survey results to ensure that the City’s priorities are aligned with the needs of our residents. Winchester Common Council and City of Winchester staff often use information about the perceptions and priorities of residents for goal-setting, budgeting and long-term planning.
