Okaloosa County is pleased to announce that the comprehensive quality of life survey, previously offered to randomly selected residents living in unincorporated areas of the county, is now open to all residents living in Okaloosa County. The open participation survey, found at https://polco.us/okaloosa22op and runs November 1 – 15, 2022.
We ask that, if residents received a mailed survey invitation, please respond via that survey link instead of the open participation survey. For those who have already responded to that survey, please do not participate in this one as well; the survey questions are identical, and your responses have been noted.
“We are excited to be conducting this survey,” says Okaloosa Board of County Commissioners Chairman Mel Ponder. “This survey will help Okaloosa County staff and board identify priorities for the community and improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County.”
The survey instrument, known as The National Community Survey™, allows the County to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country. The survey will include questions about quality of life, important characteristics of community, services provided by Okaloosa County and priorities for the future. The survey will not ask for any personally identifiable information and all responses will remain anonymous. The survey will be available online in English and Spanish.
The City of Destin is engaging residents in a POLCO survey, available at cityofdestin.com, not to be confused with the Okaloosa County Community Engagement Survey found at myokaloosa.com.
