A new report from the Urban Land Institute, Colorado in 2015, reports on survey results on attitudes toward housing, community, and transportation in the state of Colorado. ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative and the Terwilliger Center for Housing partnered with Belden Russonello Strategists LLC to conduct a statistically representative survey of adults in Colorado. The results of the survey provide an important look at Colorado residents’ attitudes toward and expectations regarding a variety of community characteristics.
Among the report’s findings:
- 93% of Coloradans are satisfied with both the quality of life in their communities and their current homes.
- 21% of low-income Coloradans express dissatisfaction with available housing options.
- 64% of Coloradans call access to green space, parks, and recreation areas a top or high priority.
- 72% of Coloradans would rather live in neighborhoods with a mix of cultural backgrounds than more homogeneous communities.
Colorado in 2015 is based on a survey of 700 adults in Colorado that was conducted as a companion to a national survey, ULI’s America in 2015, which was released in spring of 2015.
