Gaithersburg’s citizen survey results released -- Gazette.Net


More than eight in 10 Gaithersburg residents described the city as an “excellent” or “good” place to live, according to results from the city’s biennial citizen survey.

Residents specifically gave high marks for the city as a place to raise their children, their neighborhood as a place to live, and the overall image and reputation of the community.

The survey was sent by the National Research Center to 1,200 randomly selected households last fall. Sixteen percent of the surveys were returned, meaning that information was collected from 192 respondents.

An online version of the survey was made available to the general public following the mail-in effort. The results from the 146 respondents who took that survey are in a supplemental report.

Survey results will be presented at the budget public forum at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday Monday at City Hall. The full survey report is available online at
