Seattle Department of Neighborhoods seeks your input

Survey to help guide department's efforts in community outreach and engagement


May 20, 2011 (Seattle, WA) – Seattle Department of Neighborhoods seeks your input on its community outreach and engagement activities. In line with its mission of civic participation, the department is asking community members for their feedback and ideas on how it can most effectively provide support to the community. To participate in the survey, click here or visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YQLJ82V. The survey will close on June 30, 2011.


Following the adoption of the city's 2011-2012 budget, Seattle City Council provided a Statement of Legislative Intent with the directive to evaluate, refocus, and prioritize Seattle Department of Neighborhoods' community outreach and engagement functions to maximize limited resources. Results from this survey will provide much needed information on the department's present strategies and inform activities going forward.
