Vail conducting community survey

VAIL, Colorado – The town of Vail is inviting residents, property owners, business owners and employees to take part in its biennial community survey which is now under way in two formats, Web and mail-back. The survey was last conducted in 2010 and is used to evaluate municipal service levels and to identify community priorities.

The town is seeking feedback from as many constituents as possible. Postcard invitations have been mailed to households in Vail, including part-time residents, with information on how to take part in the survey.

Respondents are being asked to evaluate satisfaction levels for town services, such as public safety, snow removal, transit, parking, community development applications, coordination of events and library operations. In addition, residents are asked to identify and prioritize issues important to the future of Vail.

Mayor Andy Daly says the community feedback will be beneficial as the Town Council evaluates future budgeting scenarios.

“It’s important that we hear from as many people as we can to learn what matters most to them,” he said.

To help build interest in the survey, respondents will be eligible for a prize drawing worth $500 toward the winner’s choice of a 2012-13 parking pass, Epic Pass or a gift certificate to a Vail business.– –

Participants have the option of using the instructions on the postcard invitation they receive in the mail to fill out the survey online or to request a mail-back survey. Copies of the mail-back survey are available at the front desk of the Vail Municipal Building until April 13. Respondents are asked to participate in the survey just once. The deadline for responses is April 16.
