2021 Community Survey results available


Results for the 2021 Community Survey for Brighton are now available to the public on the City of Brighton website. Among the highlights of the survey include positive resident feedback on safety and police services, as well as Brighton as a place to live. Areas that residents rated essential or important to prioritize include providing high-quality water, focusing on the economy in the coming two years, and maintaining and improving streets in the next five years. By navigating the Community Survey web page, the public can find links to the full survey results with analysis, an online dashboard, past survey results and more.

“Thank you to each and every Brighton resident who took the time to take this survey,” said Michael Martinez, Brighton City Manager. “The survey results are going to help align priorities of the community with how the city proceeds with current and future projects.”

In early 2021, the City of Brighton contracted with the National Research Center (NRC) Polco to conduct the National Community Survey (NCS). The last time the City conducted a survey was in 2014, and prior to that, in 2007. The goal of the scientific citywide survey was to gather resident opinion on a range of community issues, from the overall quality of life to the delivery of city services and prioritization of projects. The survey period spanned from July 15 through September 2. The City will use the results of this survey to assist in decision making for future City services, policies and projects.

About NRC Polco:

Polco NRC has worked with 500-plus cities across the United States, including many in Colorado like Commerce City and Westminster, which help to serve as benchmark cities to Brighton. The NCS in partnership with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) is currently the gold standard in community assessments. This benchmarking survey provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of livability and resident perspectives about local government services, policies and management.
