I want to thank those residents who took the time to participate in the National Citizen Survey.
The information we receive from the survey results gives us critical data on how we are performing as a City.
You can read a synopsis of results in this newsletter, or read the full results on our website at www.cityoflavista.org/citizensurvey.
One portion of the survey results identifies the extent to which La Vista residents are engaged in the community. Of those responding to the survey:
• 15% reported having attended a public meeting
• 16% had volunteered
• 11% had participated in a civic group
• 57% rated opportunities to volunteer as “excellent or “good”
Quite frankly, if we are going to improve as a community, we need to do better. La Vista residents are proud of where they live, I know I am. We need our pride to match our actions. We need residents and business leaders to become more engaged in shaping the La Vista of tomorrow.
The City Council and I will work to create more citizen involvement opportunities and work even harder to ensure that we are communicating effectively with residents. Watch our website, social media accounts and the local media for announcements.
I hope you will consider contributing your time and talents to help make La Vista an even better place.
