Community Surveys

Participate in Redmond’s Annual Community Survey

Jan. 17, 2023 - The City has again partnered with an independent research organization, EMC Research, to conduct Redmond’s annual community survey. Be on the lookout for a postcard invitation in your mailbox this week, and a possible follow-up text, sent to a randomized subset of residents to collect statistically valid community feedback about what the City is doing well and what can be improved. 

In early March, an online survey will open to everyone to respond. Results from this annual survey help inform city decision-making and performance measures. 


The City of Redmond is interested in the thoughts and opinions of those who live, work and play here. Since 1998, the City has been working with an independent research organization to conduct an annual survey. 

Initially, the survey was conducted only by telephone. However, with an increasingly diverse population and the broad availability of mobile communication tools, the City now uses a multi-modal approach of landline, mobile phone, and online polling. The survey is administered and analyzed by an independent research organization, EMC Research. The survey results are one of the tools that provide invaluable help in shaping the budget to match the priorities of its community.
