Sunnyvale Livability Index – How is Sunnyvale Doing?

Sunnyvale’s favorite ways to get news

Clearly, I need to spend more time on Nextdoor, where most Sunnyvale people like to get their news. Also, the Council needs to think about how to add enrichment and recreation opportunities.  

On Tuesday, April 10 at 6:15 PM, City Council will have a study session to discuss the results of the Community Livability survey managed by the  National Research Center Inc. (NRC). It’s based on a national template of questions in categories such as safety, mobility, natural and built environments, economy, recreation and community engagement.

The City included in this year’s survey two open-ended questions to assess the top three community issues and the top three City services on which residents would like the City to focus in the coming year. The top community issues were traffic, transportation and road conditions and safety; affordable housing; and crime and safety. The top City services were roads maintenance, traffic and street lighting, and parking; police, fire and safety services; and water, sewer, cable and utilities. Affordable housing and low-income services, along with parks, recreation, libraries and open space followed very closely.
