Economic Development Survey

Residential Survey

Every other year, the City of Arvada conducts the Arvada Community Survey, allowing residents to give feedback on how well City staff is meeting their needs in terms of community amenities, local government and overall quality of life. To learn more, visit Arvada Community Survey.

Based on 2019 results we learned that we need to better understand what residents are looking for in terms of future planning, especially with regard to economic development. That is why we created a specific survey about these topics. As we plan for our city’s future, it is important to know what Arvada residents are hoping to see. We want to make sure residents' thoughts and opinions are included in the planning process.

Five-thousand Arvada residents were selected at random to participate in the 2020 survey, 1,250 from each of the City’s four Districts. If you were randomly selected for this survey, thank you! We appreciate your participation which ensures the results accurately represent Arvada’s population.

The 2020 survey is complete, and available, click here to review the results.

We plan to follow-up every other year and survey residents on these issues as well as new ones that may arise. It is important that we continue to reach out to our residents so their voice is included in our City’s future.

Business Survey

In September 2021, we plan to survey the Arvada businesses on economic development issues. Participation among all business owners is strongly encouraged to help ensure the results accurately represent Arvada’s business population. The results will be made publicly available in late 2022.
