Okaloosa County Prepares for Resident Survey
Okaloosa County officials are pleased to announce they will be conducting a comprehensive quality of life community survey beginning in the month of October. In the days to come, randomly selected residents living in the unincorporated areas of the county will receive a postcard invitation to complete the survey online. If the survey is not completed online, a reminder will be sent, along with a paper survey. Soon after, we will announce the survey to open for all residents by visiting the Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners’ website at myokaloosa.com.
“We are excited to be conducting this survey,” says Okaloosa Board of County Commissioners Chairman Mel Ponder. “This survey will help Okaloosa County staff and board identify priorities for the community and improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County.”
The survey instrument, known as The National Community Survey™, allows the County to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country. The survey will include questions about quality of life, important characteristics of community, services provided by Okaloosa County and priorities for the future. The survey will not ask for any personally identifiable information and all responses will remain anonymous. The survey will be available online in English and Spanish.
