Community Resident Survey
Since shortly after incorporation, the City Council has conducted periodic phone surveys using a professional survey company in order to assess residents' perceptions regarding city satisfaction, quality of life, sense of community, safety, and city-resident communication. The surveys have helped the City Council and staff to focus on areas of interest and understand what the community wants. The surveys have compared prior surveys in order to learn about any changes in perceptions or opinions. The 2007 Community Survey results are available on-line.
Citrus Heights Community Status Report (2001)
In October 1999, the City of Citrus Heights and four other partners (Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce, the San Juan Unified School District, the Residents' Empowerment Association of Citrus Heights - REACH and the Sunrise Recreation and Park District) received a grant through the Center for Civic Partnerships for the Citrus Heights Healthy Cities Partnership, part of the California Healthy Cities and Communities movement. The 2001 Community Status Report provides a snapshot of data to compare the City of Citrus Heights to the County, and in some cases to the State, as a whole. This report is intended to portray facts about the status of city residents. This report does not make recommendations but is intended to serve as a foundation to help the community develop programs and activities to ensure a healthy community.
Citrus Heights Community Facilities and Programming Study (October 2001)
The City of Citrus Heights Community Facilities and Programming Study provides an assessment of facilities and programs currently available in the community and recommendations for their enhancement. The study focuses on youth (ages 8 to 12), teens (ages 13 to 18) and mature adults (ages 55+), but findings and recommendations relevant to other age groups are also considered. Both public and private facilities and programs were evaluated by the study, recognizing that the City shares the responsibility of meeting facility and service needs with a number of other community groups. The City's role in these relationships is as a facilitator and broker to enhance the ability of other entities to provide services. In this capacity, the City examined the inventory of available facilities and programs, and looked for creative and cost-effective ways to leverage assets and fill the voids. Many of the recommendations from this study have been undertaken and completed.
