Check your Mailbox for a Postcard to Complete Largo’s City-wide Survey!

The City of Largo is launching the second year of a city-wide survey for residents and business owners/managers. Starting November 16, 2023, all Largo business owners should receive a postcard with a unique link and QR code to complete the survey online. The survey will open to the public in early December and is available in English and Spanish. 

     Why? The purpose of the survey is to receive public input from community members across 10 key areas of community livability (recreation, utilities, economy, education, etc.) and identify where the city is doing well, and any challenges individuals are currently experiencing. Survey results will inform city planning and potential funding priorities.
