“The [survey] will provide another valuable source of community input as we begin drafting a new Master Plan and Strategic Vision later this year … As we shift from planning to action, [the survey] will also provide benchmarks, allow us to track progress and make comparisons to other communities.”

City Manager, Kalamazoo, MI

“Polco's civic engagement platform has worked very smoothly for collecting verified community sentiment on a variety of issues. It has delivered community insights, made it easier for us to hear from more community members, and done so in a way that has been easy for staff to implement and use. The Polco team has been very helpful throughout the process.”

Tim Hannah
Mayor, Appleton, WI

“Polco has been very helpful in maintaining conversations and facilitating decision making progress. Decision makers are getting more input and conversations are being continued in the silence between meetings. This piece is important because it is easy for a community to forget that there are so many moving pieces to government, all of which require input from residents.”

Nina St. Germain
Engagement Coordinator, Bar Harbor, ME
