City Surveys & Culture Survey

The City of Hutto contracted with ETC Institute to conduct a community survey in May/June 2022. ETC has significant experience conducting similar surveys for cities of all sizes across Texas and the US. This depth of experience enables City of Hutto staff and residents to consider the results in the context of Texas averages and national averages. ETC Institute administered this statistically-valid survey of the Hutto community.

Below you will find numerous resources related to the resulting data, from the overall report to the deeper dives into responses by demographic and geographic factors, as well as presentations made to the City Council and other groups on key findings. The City chose to conduct this survey to measure and better understand residents’ level of satisfaction with City services as well as their opinions on core topics such growth, inclusivity, and quality of life. While the bulk of the survey focused on services the City directly provides to residents, there were also several questions focused on the community's indirect perceptions of diversity and inclusion; these questions were requested by the City Council's Diversity & Inclusion Commission and developed with their input. 

The City intends to partner with ETC Institute in 2024 and 2026 to issue the City Services & Culture survey again, in order to measure progress as well as study any emerging issues.
