Citizen Survey Results
La Vista residents recently participated in the National Citizen Survey, which collects, analyzes and reports data back to the City regarding its performance in a variety of areas. 

Surveys were mailed to a random sample of 1,500 households and nearly 350 were returned for a 24 percent response rate. Average response rates across the country for the National Citizen Survey are between 25 and 40 percent. 

Respondents were asked a set of standard questions to identify strengths and weaknesses about City services as well as three custom, close-ended questions and one open-ended question. 

This is the third time the City has participated in the National Citizen Survey, and overall there were no significant changes from the 2013 survey. 

The results presented to the City Council indicate that nearly 90 percent of La Vista residents ranked their overall quality of life as “excellent” or “good” and City staff are viewed in a very positive light within the community. 

Results were also positive for public safety and traffic enforcement and crime prevention earned high marks exceeding national benchmarks. Ease of travel and overall traffic flow also received positive ratings from eight out of 10 residents. 

The survey also identified some City services that have trended lower over the last two surveys, including: code enforcement, Library usage, recreation programming and classes, recreation center/facilities, street sweeping and street repair.
