The Takoma Park City Council has approved awarding a contract to have a resident survey done.
The last time the city held a resident survey was in 2007, 2009 and 2014. The contract would be given to National Research Center, Inc., who has done resident surveys for the city in the past.
There was no significant backlash, but many Council members had input to improve the survey taking form previous years.
“In the past I’ve voted against these surveys quite often because of my concerns that we’re getting the answers we want to hear and not the feelings of the community,” said Council member Terry Seamens.
