2018 Engage with Your City

Engage with your city!
 What do you value about living and working in Durango? 

This is an opportunity for your priorities, values and vision to guide the future of Durango. The City of Durango is facing difficult budgetary constraints in the near future. In order to continue to make Durango a great place to live and work, critical decisions need to be made regarding the limited resources we have to work with. Before making these decisions, we need the perspective and input of citizens like you to guide us as we seek to clarify our options.

2018 City of Durango Citizen Engagement Survey

The City has contracted with ETC consulting to administer a survey that asks how citizens feel about the condition of community assets, how well current General Fund services meet citizen expectations, and what level of support citizens have towards generating the necessary revenue to maintain the General Fund services and infrastructure.

The same survey was available via Virtual City Hall for everyone to take, you can view the responses.
