2024 City Survey

Every other year, the City of Meridian conducts a survey to gauge perspectives on the services and issues that matter most. Administered by ETC Institute, a trusted name in local government research, this survey helps us understand how well we’re meeting expectations across various aspects of city life—from public safety and parks to transportation and community development.


Meridian is more than just a place to live—it’s our shared home, where each voice contributes to our collective identity and future. Your feedback is invaluable as we look at our services and priorities. By sharing your experiences and opinions through this survey, you can help influence how we allocate resources, plan for the future, and identify how our services can better serve you and your family.


Part of this process is ensuring a statistically representative sample of our community. ETC Institute selects households to receive an invitation to participate in the survey through a few various secure methods (online access or by mail). If your household is selected, I encourage you to complete the survey at your earliest convenience.  The survey is designed to be user-friendly, taking about 15 minutes of your time. Your participation is completely confidential, and crucial in ensuring we capture a comprehensive snapshot of community sentiment.


For those households not selected by ETC to participate in the survey, you will still have an opportunity to have your voice heard. Once ETC completes data collection of their statistical representative survey, all households will be able to take the same survey online to provide feedback. We will share information in a future newsletter when that survey opportunity is available.


Once completed, ETC will provide the survey results to the city. The information will also be available for the community on the City of Meridian’s website. We expect this information by early fall and will share it with the public, at City Council, and you in a future newsletter as well.


Meridian thrives because of its engaged and caring residents. Your involvement in this survey is not just an opportunity to voice your opinions—it’s an opportunity to shape the future of our beloved community. Together, we can ensure Meridian remains the premier place to live, work, and raise a family. Thank you for your dedication to Meridian, and for helping us make informed decisions that benefit us all. Should you have any questions about the survey, please don’t hesitate to contact the City of Meridian Mayor’s Office at 208-489-0529.
