Little Chute Releases 2016 Community Survey

Earlier this year, the Village of Little Chute partnered with the UW River Falls Survey Research Center.  In April 2016, the Survey Research Center (SRC) at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls mailed surveys to 1,101 randomly selected households in the Village, followed by a second mailing to non-respondents two weeks later.

The SRC received 471 useable responses, for a net response rate of 48%.  Based on the estimated number of adults in the population of Little Chute (8,148), the results provided in the report are expected to be accurate to within plus or minus 4.4% with 95% confidence.

The effort of the survey is actually part of a larger strategy, that being the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan.  The data collected in this survey will assist in policy creation, future decision making and assist with providing data in a number of key areas for the Village of Little Chute.  Perhaps most pressing, data from the report will be utilized as staff continue to work on a cohesive marketing effort for future economic development efforts in the Village, particularly in the Downtown/Central Business District.

Finally, the Village Board of Trustees and Village staff would like to thank the residents of Little Chute for sharing their time and opinion during this effort.  With a response rate of 48%, it is safe to say that the residents of Little Chute are engaged.  We look forward to working on continually improving Village government, not only to meet your expectations that our residents clearly have for our community, but to exceed them!  

You can find the full report for the survey on the Village's Strategic Planning landing page (linked in the left column) or by clicking here
