The City of Miami Beach continues to strive to deliver outstanding, enhanced services to its residents, businesses and visitors while increasing value for the tax dollars paid and implementing changes to ensure the long-term sustainability of the City.
A significant driver in developing Citywide priorities is the community input received through the satisfaction surveys with residents, businesses, and community organizations; and focus groups and outreach meetings with the community. The surveys provide an understanding of current satisfaction levels among community groups with the City of Miami Beach government and the services it provides; provide benchmarks to similar jurisdictions; and provide recommendations for improving satisfaction and quality of life, i.e. “key drivers for improving satisfaction.” By surveying residents, businesses, and community organizations, there is a better understanding of the needs and desires of the community and the City is better able to allocate resources to address these priorities. Focus groups and community outreach meetings allow the City to gain more in-depth insight into specific topics.
