Lombard’s first National Citizen Survey results show residents have a positive quality of life

The Village of Lombard recently conducted a community wide survey that asked residents to rate the livability of the Lombard community as a whole.

The survey was sent to 3,000 random Lombard households by the National Research Center and results show that residents overwhelmingly feel that Lombard is a good place to live and raise a family.

The survey responses on more than 100 aspects of livability were compared to national data benchmarks from more than 580 other communities across the country.   Multiple Lombard livability aspects exceeded national benchmarks, including affordable quality housing, housing options, shopping opportunities, healthcare, paths and riding trails. 

In general, residents are happy with overall livability in Lombard. According to the sample surveyed: 93% rated Lombard as an excellent or good place to live, 90% rated Lombard as an excellent or good place to raise a child, and 98% of people feel safe in their neighborhood.

Village services and employee performance was also rated high by survey recipients. Respondents evaluated over 30 individual services and amenities available in Lombard. The highest rated services included police, fire and ambulance/EMS, and public works services. Results show that the most important areas of focus for Lombard residents are safety and economy, both of which received positive ratings.

The survey selection and implementation process was overseen by the Village’s Community Relations Committee, chaired by Trustee Robyn Pike. “On behalf of the Village Board, I’m very proud to be able to share these results our community,” said Pike. “We gave our fellow neighbors the opportunity to tell the Village how we’re doing, and we’re very glad with the results.”
