Community Caring Conference on behalf of the City of Rock Island is asking residents to take a community survey.
This community survey is intended to gather citizen input on a range of topics pertaining to quality of life, City services and infrastructure, housing, community and economic development, and cultural activities. The results of this survey will help the Mayor and the City Council to determine City goals and objectives for the upcoming year. The results of this survey will also help to establish policy direction for the City's Comprehensive Plan, a document that will guide growth and development of Rock Island over the next 20 years. All survey responses will remain confidential. You can take this survey online by visiting the following link:
