The City of Dublin regularly surveys residents to measure satisfaction levels, chart any changes in satisfaction and benchmark with other communities as appropriate. The City continually evaluates new and emerging survey tools and platforms and continues to invest in high-quality surveys such as the Community Attitudes Survey (CAS), which was most recently administered in 2022.
The City’s 2022 Community Attitudes Survey was conducted via telephone between April 29 and May 22, 2022. 99% of residents said Dublin is an excellent or good place to live, which was up from 98% in 2016. Satisfaction with City services remains high. In particular respondents rated the following positively:
When asked an open-ended question about what City officials should consider their highest priority, the majority of respondents (50%) named providing city services and amenities.
The 2022 CAS included some questions asked for the first time related to the City’s strategic framework. Results are as follows:
Regarding communications about Dublin, 35% of residents indicated they get most from of their news and information about the City from its social networking sites. 22% said they find it on the City’s website, and 12% learn from the City’s weekly eNews.
The City of Dublin’s Community Attitudes Survey is conducted via telephone every few years, soliciting a range of opinions from randomly selected residents. This research gives residents of Dublin yet another voice. It allows the community to express opinions on myriad issues and, in doing so, provides City officials important data in planning for the future.
The National Citizen Survey (NCS) measures the “livability” of communities across the nation. The City of Dublin participated in the survey in 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018. Once again, Dublin residents gave high marks – in most cases above the national average – in most categories.
The NCS captures residents’ opinions regarding community characteristics, governance and participation. “Great communities are partnerships of the government, private sector, community-based organizations and residents, all geographically connected,” the report states. The results demonstrate that Dublin is not just a place where people live – it’s a place people want to live.
“Dublin is a truly remarkable community. Almost all of the community characteristics and services offered by the City of Dublin were given positive ratings from a majority of respondents. Year after year, Dublin’s results continue to be above average and Dublin also continues to maintain levels of service that surpasses the expectations of its residents.” Charissa Bowditch, Project Manager, National Research Center, Inc.
The NCS is a collaborative effort between National Research Center and the International City/County Management Association. The survey and its administration are standardized to assure high quality research methods and directly comparative results across NCS communities.
In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.
JustFOIA is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online application that helps streamline the open records request process for the community and improve efficiencies in getting requested information quickly and accurately.
The application lets community members submit requests for all city records, including police reports. Commonly requested information includes accident reports, copies of resolutions and body-camera video.
