Clackamas County on “right track” according to 2014 Community Survey
A majority of Clackamas County residents believe the County is progressing “on the right track” according to the results of the 2014 Clackamas County Community Survey released today.
The survey of 400 Clackamas County residents was conducted by random phone sampling between Feb. 27 and Mar. 2.
A community survey has been conducted every two or four years since 2000. Major findings include:
- Respondents indicated higher levels of satisfaction with the County’s service delivery, with 54 percent saying the County is on the “right track.” That represents an increase from 46 percent in 2012.
- More than three-quarters of residents rate Clackamas County excellent or good in its performance rating.
- Clear majorities believe that roads in their area of the County are in excellent or good condition and do not support paying more for maintenance.
- Top priorities include public safety and in particular the County’s readiness to respond to natural disasters, economic development and providing assistance to vulnerable residents.
- Three in four residents (76 percent) have not been limited in their access to County services by the four-day work schedule. In general, those who were limited were unable to obtain needed services and reported having to take time off from work or school or take care of their task on another date.
DHM also conducted a 2014 Online Community Survey which was taken by 1,034 participants between March and April. Findings can be reviewed at www.clackamas.us/pga/documents/communitysurvey2014online.pdf
