Every other year for the past 14 years, the City of Decatur has surveyed its residents through the National Research Center (NRC.) Beginning today, the NRC is sending out a postcard notification announcing the 2020 survey to a random sample of Decatur residents. If you don’t receive a postcard in the coming days, you are not one of the 1,700 households randomly chosen this time.

With the COVID-19 pandemic weighing heavily in our lives, it can be hard to focus on anything else. Even amidst this crisis, it is important for city leaders to continue to seek feedback to understand the broader needs of our community. By completing The National Community Survey, we can gather important feedback about topics such as safety, education and enrichment, economy, and natural environment, among other topics. Such feedback is essential in uncertain times such as these, so we can keep resident opinions front and center as we chart our way forward together. And, The National Community Survey allows us to get this feedback virtually even when in-person meetings are canceled.

We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that demands our full attention and resources. Fortunately, we are working with a third party, National Research Center, to conduct the survey. This will allow our City leaders’ valuable time and attention to focus on the most imminent needs at this time.

While The National Community Survey covers more general topics about livability in the City of Decatur, you can also provide feedback on specific COVID-19 community impacts here.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, contact City Clerk Meredith Roark at meredith.roark@decaturga.com.
