DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO — What makes Sacramento distinct and special? The City of Sacramento is working with a firm on a study to uncover that “certain something” essential to the nature of the city.

It may be a physical asset, an attitude, an accomplishment or the history.

Being able to better understand the unique culture will allow the residents to protect those characteristics, encourage growth and leverage distinction for the city’s prosperity.

As part of the research process, the City is launching a community-widesurvey to obtain a perspective from the population at large. The Public’s participation is vital in helping the City understand what makes Sacramento distinct.

By providing an opinion, the City of Sacramento can help shape the direction the community will take moving forward.

Please allow 15 minutes to complete the survey. The survey must be finished once it is opened.

The person taking the survey cannot return to the page once the process has begun. All responses are confidential and only accumulated responses will be reported.

The survey will be available until Aug 8. Share the survey with friends, family members or colleagues who live in the Sacramento area. To take the survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SacramentoCommunitySurvey.
