The National Research Center, through Polco, is contracted with the Town of Firestone to conduct this survey. Your address was included in a list of all addresses from the post office. This is a standard service offered by the post office. Your personal information is never shared with anyone, not even the Town of Firestone.
The resident of the property should complete the survey.

An open participation online survey will be available on the Town’s website between June 29th and July 13th. If there are additional adults in your household who would like to participate, you are encouraged to take the open participation survey online.
This is so that we can choose in an unbiased way a person within each household to complete the survey. While it may seem a bit strange, using the “birthday method” is a simple way to select an adult from within each household without permitting bias in our results. This way, we ensure the results are representative of our community as a whole.
Yes. The Town of Firestone Community Survey is a scientific survey conducted by Polco and the National Research Center (NRC). NRC has over 20 years of conducting survey research for local governments. The survey has a statistically valid margin of error of +/- 3%. With this margin of error, you may conclude that when 60% of survey respondents report that a particular service is “excellent” or “good” somewhere between 57% and 63% of all Firestone residents are likely to feel the same way.
This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in shaping Firestone's future. The survey results will be a powerful tool to help guide policy direction for the Firestone Board of Trustees and Town Staff and help prioritize projects within the Town.

Email addresses are not sold or shared with other parties for any reason, ever; not even our own staff and elected officials have access to this information.
