The city of Goodyear published the results of a commissioned survey Monday on residents’ perceptions of various metrics of city management and concerns.
The National Research Center at Polco surveys Goodyear every two years. It includes a range of questions about city programs and services.
According to city officials, the results play a significant role in city planning. In the past, the survey has identified opportunities to allocate funds or resources to improve the future livability of the city.
Almost 9 out of 10 people surveyed recommend living in Goodyear, with 93% saying they feel safe in their respective neighborhood. Roughly 85% of respondents said Goodyear was an excellent place to live, while 74% felt it was a great place to work.
Resident perception of affordability of Goodyear declined from 2021, which includes categories like the availability of affordable quality housing, health care, mental health care and cheap quality foods.
