City of Portland Citizen Survey

Residents' opinions and perspectives help shape the plans and actions of the City of Portland. The Citizen Survey helps city leadership gauge how the City is performing, but more importantly, it plays a critical role in determining future City programs and initiatives.

We hope that you’ll take a few minutes to complete the survey. Up to two surveys may be submitted per household. Results will be tabulated by a third party, National Service Research. All responses will remain anonymous.
The deadline to submit a survey is March 26, 2018.

If you need access to a computer to complete the survey, public computers are available at the Bell/Whittington Public Library at 2400 Memorial Parkway.

Infiltration & Inflow Study

During the next few months, the City of Portland will conduct a Sanitary Sewer Infiltration & Inflow (I&I) Study to address any deficiencies in the system on a proactive basis.

The study does involve a “smoke test,” which is not harmful to pets or humans. However, it is proven method of identifying and locating problems in the system.

Get the details on the study and related field tests here.


Mosquito Control Program


The City of Portland sprays for mosquitoes throughout mosquito season. We encourage residents to implement mosquito control efforts at their own homes as well.

View the city’s schedule for spraying, as well as other information about safeguarding you and your family from mosquitoes here.
