To help maintain high-quality service to residents, the City of Lakewood regularly conducts a survey of local households for their opinions on city services and issues.
New this year, the survey will be conducted online, which will enable more residents to conveniently participate. To take the survey, go to www.lakewoodcity.org/survey.
If you don't have computer access, call city hall at 562-866-9771, extension 2140 and they’ll be glad to mail you a survey to fill out.
The last day to take the community survey will be Monday, May 27.
Lakewood 4-for-4 as 'Playful City USA'
In recognition of Lakewood’s high quality playgrounds, parks and recreation services, the city has won a prestigious 2013 “Playful City USA” designation for the fourth year in a row. Lakewood also received the recognition in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Playful City USA recognitions are provided by KaBoom!, a national non-profit organization that promotes children’s recreation and the creation of more places for children to play.
