Council Message: Citizens Survey Results

By Councilmember Tawnee McCay


It is important to hear from our awesome Riverton residents with your priorities, desires, and suggestions. I’m grateful that our Communications Department does a survey biannually to receive feedback from you. We had almost 2,500 residents complete the 2023 Citizens Survey.

I’m happy to report that over 93% of those who participated in the survey are satisfied with the quality of life in Riverton, and over 86% are satisfied with the services provided by Riverton City (streets, drinking and secondary water, parks, Riverton Police Department, and United Fire Authority). Seventy-one percent of our residents feel that our utility fees are reasonable, which is good because they are some of the lowest in the county.

Our residents enjoy our community events! Riverton residents shared that they would like to see more theater productions and art and music classes. Our Sandra Lloyd Community Center was recently remodeled using a grant that the city received, and we will be having a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the indoor and new outdoor space this spring.

The survey responses also show residents still want more sit-down restaurants, entertainment options, and small retail shops. With the continued growth of Mountain View Village, our residents are enjoying the additional options. As far as outdoor recreation, the number one request is walking paths/trails, pickleball courts, and splash pads. We received a grant and will be paving parts of the Welby Jacobs Canal road for a walking path. I’ve heard from residents in my district that they would love to have more trails to link us to other cities, parks, and the Jordan River Trail. My kids and I enjoy bike rides and taking our dogs for walks and understand the desire for more safe trails.

Our community feels that the best aspect of living in Riverton is feeling safe and the small-town feel. We enjoy the many city events and sense of love we feel for each other and our city. Thank you for your feedback and keep making Riverton the best place to live!
