Survey Results Show La Mirada Residents Satisfied with Quality of Life

October 19, 2022

 The City of La Mirada contracted with Godbe Research to conduct a Community Satisfaction Survey in late August.  Nearly 700 residents participated in the survey, which was conducted online and by telephone interviews.  Residents provided responses to a variety of questions related to living in La Mirada including the levels of importance and satisfaction with City programs and services, quality of life, and sense of community.  Overall, more than 89% of residents surveyed expressed they are satisfied with the quality of life in La Mirada.

Among the top priorities identified by residents are the overall feeling of safety, appearance and cleanliness of the city, and the condition of streets and roads.  Respondents were asked to indicate the greatest challenge the City faced during the next five years, and responding to homelessness and providing neighborhood police protection were the top responses.  Some of the City’s greatest opportunities over the next five years identified on the survey included park upgrades, such as walking paths, restrooms, and lighting, new economic development along the I-5 Freeway, and City facility enhancements and repairs.

“Providing a safe, clean, and attractive community is the City’s top priority,” says City Manager Jeff Boynton.  “The recent survey results show these areas remain most important to our residents, too.”

The survey results along with additional feedback provided by residents will assist the City in developing a strategic plan to guide the City during the next five years.  The City remains committed to providing quality programs and services for the community to ensure La Mirada remains an exceptional place to live, work, and visit.
