Your Business Voice Matters! National Business Survey

The City of Fort Collins is excited to launch the 2022 National Business Survey (NBS) and gather feedback that will create a more connected and effective business community. By taking this survey and participating in the Polco Platform, we’re getting input from you, the business community, that will help ensure that we understand your values in a clear, identifiable way. It also guarantees that we are representing all members of the community — all of whom are key in helping influence the decisions we make about programs, policies, and other matters that are important. Your feedback helps create a healthier economy, happier residents, and a better tomorrow.    

 The survey keeps individual opinions and data anonymous, while allowing City staff to see broad demographic and geographic breakdowns of results. Your privacy is important to us. 

Interested in making a positive, progressive change in the community? Take the 2022 National Business Survey starting Monday, June 6, 2022 through Tuesday, June 21, 2022.
