RENTON, WA -  Random households within the city limits will be receiving an invitation from Mayor Denis Law to participate in the City of Renton’s 2017 Residential Survey. Invitations were sent by email and regular mail and contain a link to the web-based survey.

Early the week of September 18, the city will also start conducting a phone survey of residents.

The survey is being conducted by Northwest Research Group in order to maintain confidentiality and ensure the feedback received is scientifically valid. Both the web and phone surveys are using random sampling so not every household will receive the invitation to participate.

The city making their Language Line services available to meet the needs of residents who would be more comfortable with translation assistance. Information on how to use this service in included in the invitation letter.
