Residents continue to think the city is a great place to live, work and raise a family based on results from the 2017 citywide survey.
Overland Park works with the ETC Institute to conduct citywide surveys of residents. These surveys measure residents' level of satisfaction with municipal services, programs and amenities. The data is used for continuing analysis and comparison with previous survey results and ETC benchmarks. In 2016, more than 1,700 residents provided feedback through this survey.
Most of the residents surveyed were highly satisfied with City services. In particular, residents shared highest levels of satisfaction in the following areas:
- Public safety
- Parks and recreation
- Code enforcement
- City maintenance
- City leadership
- City communication.
Some residents expressed they would like more emphasis on:
- maintenance of city streets, buildings and facilities, and
- flow of traffic/congestion management on major City streets.
Almost 100% of residents responding believe the City of Overland Park is an "excellent" or "good" place to live, raise children, and work.
