In its ongoing efforts to identify ways to better serve the community, the City of Cambridge has been conducting a Citizen Survey every other year since 2000.  The 2012 City of Cambridge Citizen Survey will be held Sept. 4 - 25, 2012. 

The survey serves as an important evaluation tool that enables residents to rate city services and offer input on what the City of Cambridge does well and where it can make improvements.

Results from this survey will assist City Manager Robert W. Healy and the Cambridge City Council in setting priority focus areas for the next couple of years. Opinion Dynamics Corporation (ODC), a national public opinion polling firm based in Waltham, will be coordinating the Citizen Survey. ODC is a full-service research firm, with its own state-of-the-art Telephone Calling facility. ODC will be randomly calling 400 Cambridge residents on behalf of the city to complete the survey. Every household in the city with a telephone will have an equal chance of being called. This year, at least one-quarter of the phone surveys will be conducted with cell phone only households. The survey will cover a range of issues dealing with city services. 

Residents who would like to participate can complete the survey online Sept. 4 – 25, 2012 at www.opiniondynamics.com/cambridge.html.
