Colorado Municipal league
Member survey, benchmark and tracking research, surveys
The Colorado Municipal League (CML) has retained Corona Insights yearly for over a decade to conduct the “State of Our Cities and Towns” research. We have been the research partner of CML on this annual project since the project’s inception. The initial study focused on creating financial benchmarks, especially critical at the time because the financial crisis had just begun. In each subsequent year, we have collected data to measure change in these metrics and tell the story of how Colorado’s towns have rebounded since the recession. Additionally, each year we collected additional information on a new topic for that year, from public safety, to parks and recreation, to transportation and more. This provided fresh insight and content for the annual report in addition to the financial monitoring. CML uses this information annually to both broadly report on the state of Colorado’s cities and towns and to inform leaders and policy around the state.
