Espanola Survey Says…

Council for the Town of Espanola has received the results from the 2019 Citizen Survey Report prepared by OraclePoll Research.  This survey garnered the opinions of 500 residents and 36 businesses relating to the quality of life in the community and satisfaction levels of municipal services. 

The results of the survey reinforce that the small-town atmosphere is what residents like the most about living in Espanola; with our greatest assets being the people, the natural environment, recreation and employment opportunities, our excellent healthcare and our schools.  

Overall satisfaction with municipal services was up 10% over the previous survey results in 2016.  “These results are a reflection of the hard work, commitment and dedication of our staff who take pride in their work and truly care for our community” stated Mayor Beer.  

When asked about the strategic direction, 30% cited sustainable economic growth & prosperity as a priority, followed by 29% support for improving and maintaining our infrastructure.  Other questions focused on levels of service, future opportunities, methods of communication, including voting methods and the website. 

The Town thanks everyone that took the time to complete the survey.  These results are integral in planning the future direction for the Town as part of the new Strategic Plan.
