Thank you for participating in Austin: Welcoming City, an effort to gather community input to develop a shared definition and vision for Austin as a “Welcoming City” for international newcomers. The community input process will take place between October 2014 and February 2015, and will target immigrant residents, service providers, funders, elected officials, and the general public, through a combination of surveys, focus groups, and a provider summit. Community stakeholder participation is critical to ensure a meaningful public participation process and quality results.
We invite you to participate in a survey by clicking the links below. These surveys will take 5-20 minutes to complete, depending on survey type and the amount of information individual respondents choose to share. The purpose of these surveys is to capture your knowledge, experience, and perspective as a member of the Austin/Travis County community, so that local community members inform and define what “welcoming” means in the context of our community. Please choose from the surveys below (you may complete more than one survey, if more than one applies to you):
SURVEYS: Austin as a Welcoming City
General public survey
Business community survey
Service provider community survey
Funders (public and philanthropic) survey
Your input will directly inform a visioning document for Austin as a Welcoming City. The final report will be available in spring/summer 2015 at this website: http://austintexas.gov/internationalwelcome
