Community Survey Results

December 7, 2017 

A recently commissioned independent survey shows Merced residents are concerned about crime, poverty, and homelessness. Nearly 50% of residents believe that local parks are unsafe at night, and 62% believe that crime in general has increased over the last few years. As a result, many residents prioritized protecting, maintaining, and expanding public safety services as services the City should focus on.
