The survey is designed to provide a baseline of how the Kingsport government is serving residents, to gauge perceptions of the city, and to make comparisons with peer communities.
Kingsport contracted with Polco/National Research Center, Inc., an impartial third-party firm that provides municipal governments with a low-cost, high-quality method to conduct community research. The survey centers on community livability and includes questions about the quality of life in the community, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services, the emergency services departments and questions about how residents are getting city information.
“We’re excited to have the survey now open to everyone to complete and we encourage everyone to please do so,” said Jessica Harmon, assistant to the city manager.
From this survey, city leaders will have the ability to see where Kingsport aligns by benchmarking against over 600 communities across the county that have administered the National Community Survey.
A random and scientific sample of 2,700 households received invitations to participate in the mail and their confidential responses will be weighted and analyzed. This data will be kept separate from the data collected from the open link.
