Sustainability Survey of Detroiters
The City of Detroit’s Office of Sustainability is excited to engage Detroiters for our Sustainability Action Agenda. We are working hand-in-hand with residents that live in our city to set the course for the future in a way that is healthy, clean, prosperous, and equitable for generations to come. At the end of this survey, there is an optional section on demographics to ensure that we are getting input from a representative sample of Detroiters. Individual information will be kept confidential. We will be using the collective input of Detroiters to shape a plan that includes the voices of all Detroiters. Thank you for participating. We’re excited to learn from you.
