News and Knowledge

Polco's platform was very easy to use and delivered valuable community engagement.

Emily Springstroh
Communications Coordinator, Oshkosh, Wisc.

An empowering survey like this gives everyone a chance to answer anonymously within five minutes, and we’re hoping residents of all backgrounds utilize this quick, safe and equitable way to express their important opinions on this very important topic.

James Boyd
Mayor, De Pere, Wisc. 

This is very useful. I can’t tell you how many times we reflect on the community survey results to help guide our policy decisions over the next four years.

Ashley Stolzmann
Mayor, Louisville, Colo.

The [National] Community Survey is an important tool to inform city operations by helping us align our strategic plan, departmental work plans and budgets with community priorities. It was a key input in the City Plan update, and will help shape the city’s Strategic Plan update.

Kelly DiMartino
Deputy City Manager, Fort Collins, Colo.
