Community Surveys

Everyone has a role to play in determining Santa Maria’s future – including you! Surveys are an opportunity to share your thoughts about the future of Santa Maria, issues in Santa Maria, and what makes Santa Maria special. Your thoughts will help the City create a shared vision for the General Plan Update.


Please take the Community Visioning Survey to share your top priorities for the future of Santa Maria! This survey will be open through December 13. 

¡Por favor complete la Encuesta de Visión Comunitaria para compartir con nosotros sus prioridades sobre el futuro de Santa Maria! La encuesta estará disponible hasta el 13 de diciembre.
