Survey information

Every two years, we survey Mesa County Residents about their priorities for the community.

All residents of Mesa County, 18 years and older, were invited to participate in a 37-question survey during the summer of 2022.

Survey results

Over 1,200 people in Mesa County told us their priorities. This is what we learned. 

County leadership wanted to learn from the community about: 

  • Progress on key initiatives.
  • Customer service and efficiency of county government.
  • Areas for future growth.
  • We explored responses by demographic and socioeconomic factors. This allowed our team to identify deeper findings and areas for impact.

Questions were based on these topic areas:

  • County Programs & Services
  • County’s Strategic Plan
  • County Leadership
  • County Communication
  • Community Priorities
  • Quality of Life
