Citizen opinion is an important factor in making the best decisions for the community. The Town of Cary obtains input in a number of ways, including open houses, public hearings and social media.
But Cary has gone further by initiating a program of regular research as part of its comprehensive communications effort. To gauge effectiveness in achieving its mission, the Town believes that it must accurately measure citizens' satisfaction with, and confidence in, their local government.
Biennial Citizen Surveys
Every two years the Town conducts a scientific telephone survey of Cary citizens. The survey focuses on services and operations issues.
- Raleigh-Cary Rail Crossing Study: The Town participated in, and contributed funding to, this 2014-2016 study by the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO).
- NC 54 and More Study: The Town contributed funding to this NCDOT-led study from January 2016.
From time to time, the Town commissions special research projects to gather opinion on important topics.
