Pensacola headed in right direction

The City of Pensacola is pleased to announce the results of the third annual City of Pensacola Community Survey. This is a great local partnership with the UWF Haas Center, and we are pleased with the results. Nearly 70 percent of respondents said that the City of Pensacola is headed in the right direction. Although we still have work to do, we have a plan in place.

The survey is conducted to assess resident satisfaction with the delivery of major city services, help improve the quality of those services, and determine budget priorities.
