The results are in. In late 2012, the City of Holland contracted with the Frost Research Center at Hope College to conduct a Resident Survey.
A statistically valid sample of City of Holland residents provided feedback on various topics, including resident satisfaction with quality of life in Holland, City services and amenities, options for changing and funding public safety services, special projects under consideration by the City, and energy use and generation. Those surveyed were a representative cross-section of the City, closely matching 2010 Census demographics. Both traditional land lines and mobile numbers were surveyed.
The summary results from the survey are below. The full report will be presented to Holland City Council at its regular meeting on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 7 PM, Holland City Hall, Council Chambers and then posted here.
