Boulder Community Court  
COMMUNITY SURVEY SPRING

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey about downtown Boulder and your neighborhood. The Municipal Court is in the process of investigating the need for a  community court program.
Community courts are neighborhood-focused courts that use a combined strategy of holding participants accountable, often through community service, while connecting them to social services to help address the root causes of crime.

A community court engages a wide array of stakeholders, including residents, business owners, and churches in an effort to promote safer, stronger, healthier communities.

The Municipal Court developed this survey and will be analyzing the results. If you have questions, please contact De'Von Kissick Kelly at (303) 441-1809. This survey should take 10 minutes to complete. Your answers will be completely anonymous and will not be linked to you in any way.

Please fill out the questions to the best of your ability. Survey responses need to be submitted by July 1st.
