[ARCHIVED] Resident survey results provide valuable insight

Citizen Survey_Jan 19 2023

Results of the recent resident survey have been compiled and the complete report is available for review on the city’s website. The purpose of the survey is to help policy makers better understand priorities for government action and citizen opinions on quality of life issues and public services. City commissioners reviewed the survey’s findings at their Goal Setting and Strategic Planning Retreat last week. View the report here

The questionnaire was randomly mailed to 2,800 residents with 280 completed responses returned. About 38% of respondents have lived in Daytona Beach for more than 20 years and 54% rent their homes with 70% rating their neighborhoods as excellent or good. 

Daytona Beach residents listed overall economic health and the quality of utility infrastructure as top priorities. 

 About two-thirds of residents rated Daytona Beach’s shopping opportunities and a place to visit as either excellent or good. 

The quality of fire services gained marks of excellent or good by three-quarters of survey respondents. Both the quality of police services and ambulance or emergency medical services were similarly rates by two-thirds of residents.

About 8 in 10 participants stated that the quality of garbage collection was excellent or good. Roughly 6 in 10 residents rated the ease of traveling by car in Daytona Beach as excellent or good and about half of respondents similarly reviewed the traffic flow on major streets. 

The survey was conducted by Polco, a social science research firm that specializes in gathering and analyzing information for public sector entities, including local governments, non-profit agencies and foundations
