Election and the Insight Community
Thank you very much for being a member of the Edmonton Insight Community and for your interest in City of Edmonton issues. We want to let you know that the Insight Community will be taking a break during July, August, September and October out of respect for the municipal election campaign. which ends with the election on October 16, 2017. During this period you will still receive our monthly newsletter "Insight In Action", but you will not receive any new surveys to complete. We will resume sending out surveys in November.
You may be wondering why we are taking a break for the election. Isn't an election campaign the perfect time to engage people on the issues? Yes, but the Insight Community is a tool of City administration and during an election we do our best to steer clear of the issues so they can be debated by candidates and citizens as part of the election process.. This includes both the current Mayor and Councillors, as well as those newcomers seeking office. We want to ensure a level playing field for all.
If you have any questions about this or any other aspect of the City's public engagement, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Insight in Action!
In December, Insight Community members were asked to participate in the annual Citizen Perception Survey. In 2014, Council
approved 12 Outcomes and 26 outcome measures to track performance on the strategic goals.Six of the outcome measures approved by Council are qualitative and derived from this Citizen Perception Survey administered annually to Edmontonians. The results from this survey are shared with City Council through The Way Ahead Progress Report and guide City Council's decisions and progress towards the long-term vision of the city.
The full report can be viewed here: Final Report - Measuring Progress Survey Jan 21 2017.pdf
