Community Needs Assessment
In early 2016, the City Council determined to undertake a community needs assessment to inform the next award cycle for the City's funding for human services. An Ad Hoc committee was formed (including Councilmembers Medina, Scott, and Townsend) to identify potential scope for an assessment, cost, and timing requirements. The City selected the consulting firm PRR, Inc. to conduct the assessment. Over a period of several months, PRR completed the project through research on demographic trends, one-on-one discussions with key community leaders, a survey specific to local service providers, a general community survey, and a series of small focus groups. Results of this work were presented to the City Council on September 27, 2016 and are presented in the
2016 Community Needs Assessment Report.
