The 2020 Celina Community Survey had a phenomenal response rate, with more than three times a healthy minimum for a city (i.e. two percent) and 550 more responses than the 2018 Survey, which also had a high response rate. The Survey asked the community for their thoughts and opinions of current events, trends, and happenings within Celina. Overall the Survey respondents are pleased with the current economic development and planning efforts in Celina, especially in terms of Downtown and supporting local businesses, and there is an interest in seeing the City continue to explore additional opportunities to strengthen Downtown, expand parks and recreation amenities, and improve infrastructure. Respondents also feel Celina embraces a strong sense of community with a small-town feel. Weaknesses and threats related to fears of losing the sense of community and rural character with rapid and unplanned growth. There were also concerns expressed about the high cost of City utilities, especially water. Through this Survey, Celina is able to more accurately respond to the community’s needs and vision for the future, in addition to understanding how the efforts of the City have been perceived so far. With this Survey Report in hand, the community can prioritize what comes next and what the vision for the future holds.
The survey was active from January 15 to February 12, 2018, we received wonderful feedback, and a report will be published on this webpage.
The City of Celina is in the process of initiating planning efforts for the future of Celina. We are excited to kick these planning efforts off with gathering some initial community feedback on what issues need to be addressed and what things we can build on to improve our quality of life. The feedback and ideas gathered from this survey will be analyzed to guide a new Strategic Plan for the City Council and to set a baseline for a future update to Celina’s comprehensive plan.
We anticipate that the survey will take about 10 minutes, but it could take longer if extra thought is put into the questions about Celina’s future. We sincerely appreciate the efforts of the community members in participating in this process with us, and we look forward to seeing the responses and ideas!
This survey has closed on February 12, 2018.
