Mountain Village Opens 2013 Community Survey

Mountain Village Opens 2013 Community Survey

Residents, property owners, business owners play role in budget process

Mt Vill,Summer, mountainsRight now, Mountain Village community members have the opportunity to opine on a number of key topics. In an effort to collect as many opinions as possible a direct mailer was sent to over 1,600 Mountain Village residents, property owners, and business licensees requesting them to complete the 2013 Mountain Village Community Survey online by June 30. The survey can be found at

The intent of the survey is to determine the community’s perceptions and attitudes regarding a number of town-related topics such as quality of life, town services, planning, and economic development, and expenditure patterns.

“The Mountain Village government greatly values its community members and their opinions regarding the town and how it functions as a municipality and as a resort destination. To help the town deliver exceptional customer service and prioritize town spending on operations and capital projects, we ask that everyone who receives a direct mailer takes the time to complete the survey by the deadline date,” Town Manager Kim Montgomery said. “Survey respondents may be assured that all opinions will remain confidential and that names and addresses will not be identified with survey responses.”

With 64 questions to answer, completing the survey will take 15- to 20-minutes. Once the survey results are tabulated, the town intends to apply its findings to assist with the 2013 budget process and improve its day-to-day operations. Moreover, with the results of three similar surveys – the town also conducted a survey in 2007/2008 and 2010 – the information and data received is invaluable for purposes of municipal benchmarking. A presentation of the results will occur during the August 15 Town Council meeting.

As a thank-you for participation, all completed survey respondents are eligible to enter in a drawing to win one of five $100 Mountain Village Gift Certificates.

For questions or assistance with the survey contact Community Relations Manager Nichole Zangara Riley at 970.729.2179.


Mountain Village, situated in the heart of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, was incorporated in 1995 as a home rule municipality.  Its founders envisioned a European-style ski-in/ski-out, pedestrian-friendly destination resort that would complement the historic mining town of Telluride. A three-stage gondola transportation system connects the Town of Mountain Village with the Town of Telluride. Situated at 9,500 feet, Mountain Village is comparably a world apart from other resorts: it is innately spectacular, beautifully orchestrated and planned, and overflowing with style, charm and sophistication.
