City Services Reporting Project
The City values input and feedback from University Place residents and continues to work on providing clear and useful information to the public about City services. As part of the City's effort to develop meaningful reporting on City services to share with the public, staff solicited community input through the 2010 Citizen Survey and a series of 2011 focus groups. The feedback residents' provided was used to develop a concise services report based on what residents indicated they would like to know about City services.
Below is the final 2010 City Services Report, based on citizen input. The full survey and focus group results, as well as summaries, are also below for your information. If you have any questions, please contact Steve Buter at 253.460.2505.
