Flashvote surveys are intended to be quick, taking a minute or two to complete, and are only live for 48 hours. Within 30 minutes of the survey closing, all participants were sent an e-mail with results including charts, graphs and filter tools for gender, age and more.

Subsequent surveys in March, April and May drill down into areas that rose to the top as to what mattered most in the first survey, in addition to comments heard at Business Speaks Area and Investor meetings.

As of press time, the count of Truckee FlashVote members is 1,551 (up from 786 at the time of the first survey). The more locals and 2nd homeowners who join Flashvote, the better and more accurate the crowdsourced feedback will be.

FlashVote was selected as the survey App after a four-month discovery process that included evaluating national surveys and systems including Gallup, Livability and the Reno master plan citizen survey.

Press Release

Chamber of Commerce Partners with FlashVote to Launch Truckee Quality of Life Surveys

Participants Will Share Feedback That Will Measure Quality of Life for Those Who Live, Work and Play in Truckee

TRUCKEE, Calif. - Jan. 23, 2018 - Committed to measuring the quality of life for those who live, work and play in Truckee, the Chamber of Commerce has partnered with FlashVote, a fast and convenient survey service that allows large numbers of citizens to easily give input.

Local residents, second homeowners, incoming commuters and visitors who have one minute a month to participate are encouraged to join their friends and neighbors by signing up for Truckee surveys at https://www.flashvote.com/truckee or by calling 775-235-2240.

As one of four deliverables for Truckee Tomorrow Phase II (a collaborative economic development initiative led by the Truckee Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Truckee and public/private investors), the Truckee Quality of Life surveys will happen once a month in March, April and May 2018. Surveys are live for two days, take about one minute, and can be completed via mobile phone.

“The Quality of Life Surveys will establish a baseline for 2018, to be measured again annually in order to identify trends that we need to carefully pay attention to. Questions include such concepts as optimism, work situation, and hope for the future in ways that have never been measured before in Truckee,” said Colleen Dalton, brand communications director for Truckee Chamber. “We chose FlashVote as our survey application due to their national reputation as an easy way to get feedback that helps build public trust. In fact, FlashVote was first tested by the Town of Truckee a few years ago, and has been used by the Truckee-Tahoe Airport District, and is now currently being used by Tahoe Donner and Tahoe City.”

The three Truckee Quality of Life survey themes are live, work and play, reflecting Truckee’s core values (healthy lifestyle, community minded, natural beauty, family friendly, history, art and culture) as measured in the 2016 Truckee Tomorrow Phase I, Place Based Marketing Initiative.

FlashVote is a way to quickly and easily solicit feedback on topics that can impact future decisions being made to improve the quality of life in Truckee, and allow the community to have a voice. FlashVote surveys take only 48 hours from launch to completion and making the results public, enabling timely insight for leadership for all Truckee organizations.

“The intention is to measure quality of life primarily for local residents, but also for anyone who spends significant time in Truckee, including second homeowners, visitors and incoming commuters. By signing up at  https://www.flashvote.com/truckee, you can make your voice heard and help make Truckee better,” continued Dalton.
