City of Traverse City Master + Mobility Plan Survey

Greetings, Saludos, and Boozhoo!
 
Welcome to this online survey facilitated by the City of Traverse City to inform both the Master Plan and Mobility Action Plan.  This survey will be available until October 9, 2022.
 
The survey is 18 questions and should take about 13 minutes to complete.
 
We are grateful for your time and input in this process. Thank You, Gracias, and Miigwetch.

Question Title

* 1. Now, we’d like to get to know you! These next 10 demographic questions are designed to better understand your personal experience in Traverse City.

This data provides the city a benchmark to understand who took this survey, in comparison to the overall city demographics. This data also allows the city to analyze survey responses by demographic, which is important because individuals of different demographics may have different needs and priorities in Traverse City (for example, individuals with children may have differing experiences and opinions versus individuals without children).

For questions related to personal income, race/ethnicity, and gender, you have the option of not answering. Regardless of whether or not you answer every question, all survey responses will be kept anonymous. Of the following, which describes your experience with the City of Traverse City? For reference a map of the City of Traverse City boundaries is shown below. Select all that apply.
