S’mass launches community survey
The town of Snowmass Village launched a community survey Wednesday intended to gather feedback from residents, guests and business owners on local issues and town services.
Earlier this year, the Snowmass Village Town Council made improving communication with the community one of its top priorities, according to a statement. Survey questions range from satisfaction with town services to preferences for traffic-calming measures.
The town views the survey as an excellent tool to listen to community members, the statement said.
“We encourage the community to provide their feedback and tell us how we’re doing,” said Town Manager Clint Kinney. “This survey is an important tool for the town to gauge how we as an organization are doing and to ensure we’re meeting the needs of the public.”
Past survey results have played a large role in guiding important town projects and setting priorities for the community.
“Communication requires listening first, and the community survey provides us a chance to listen in a statistically valid format,” Kinney said.
This year’s survey, which should take less than 15 minutes to complete, is being primarily conducted electronically. Respondents who complete the survey before July 3 will be entered to win two VIP Silver Patron passes to the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience on Sept. 4 through 6 or one of two $100 gift cards to Clark’s Market.
A link to the survey was sent out to approximately 4,500 e-newsletter subscribers early June 17. The survey can be accessed directly at http://www.tosv.com/CommunitySurvey.
Paper versions of the survey also are available by contacting Travis Elliott, assistant to the town manager, at 970-922-2275.
