Some Oak Park residents may soon receive a survey from village government. The survey, sent to a randomly selected group of Oak Parkers, is intended to help the village board, as well as other local policy makers, understand government action priorities. It will also be used to evaluate citizen-held opinions on public services and quality of life in the village.
The organization overseeing this survey, the National Research Center Inc. (NRC), has conducted seven other village surveys in the past, the most recent in 2017.
Surveys are expected to take no more than 15 minutes to complete and participants will be able to submit answers online using a special code. All survey responses are confidential.
A national database created by NRC and the International City Managers Association allows the village to compare the results of this survey to other communities both in and outside of Illinois.
