The team selected a company called Market Perceptions to complete and implement a community-focused economic development survey in 2020. More than 500 individuals responded to the survey providing statistically significant data results. The survey results were made available on arvadaeconomicdevelopment.org in 2021.
In 2021, a similar survey was sent to the Arvada business community. Over 250 businesses responded to the survey. The data is currently being analyzed and will be available in Q1 of 2022. This data will be combined with other data gathered from previous economic development focus groups and community surveys to calibrate the City's economic development efforts.
This strategic result is 80% complete based on the amount of progress the team has made to date. Following the review of the data, the team will engage with various stakeholder groups, including the City Council to create a workplan, which when implemented will complete this strategic result.
