  • National citizen survey seeks opinions from Dover residents

    posted on 6/1/2023

    The City of Dover has released its biannual National Community Survey, and Dover residents are encouraged to participate to help the city measure service performance and quality and assess community needs.

    "Participation in the survey is crucial as it serves as a guide for decision-making that shapes the future of our city," said City Manager J. Michael Joyal, Jr. "I urge all Dover residents to take a few moments and complete the anonymous survey, and share your valuable insights."

    The community survey results, combined with other feedback, help the City Council, various city boards and commissions, and the city administration understand and respond appropriately to the community’s needs in the upcoming years and make comparisons to other peer cities. The questions focus on community livability, quality of life, local policies, rating of local government services, and resident use of services.

    The online survey can be accessed here: https://polco.us/dover2023op. Randomly selected residents were mailed in May either a physical copy of the survey or a postcard that directed recipients to an online survey via a private link. If you received the survey's paper version or a private online survey link, please complete those versions instead.

    Survey results will be available after the survey concludes on June 16, 2023....more
