SUWANEE — Suwanee residents aren’t so crazy about traffic flow on major streets or ease of bus travel, but they like the overall quality of life, the availability of walking trails and cleanliness of the community.
And they really, really like the preservation of natural areas and the job Suwanee government does in welcoming resident involvement, according to the results of the National Citizen Survey.
In those two areas, Suwanee was ranked No. 1 in the nation, according to survey results.
Overall, Suwanee was rated above the national benchmark in 63 areas when considering community characteristics and local government services. Residents’ responses to the 120 survey questions placed the city in the 90th percentile in the nation.
The city scored a top 10 national ranking in the following areas: a good place to live, overall appearance, city parks, sense of community, opportunity to participate in social events and activities, overall reputation/image and services provided by the city.
A presentation about Suwanee’s National Citizen Survey results will be made during the March 22 City Council meeting.
