Marin Grand Jury

How engaged are you with local government? The Marin Grand Jury wants to know

Marin Grand Jury - Marin Civic Center
San Rafael, California
March 7, 2017 to March 25, 2017

This is a notice from Jay Hamilton-Roth, the Foreperson of the Marin Grand Jury.

The Marin County Civil Grand Jury would like your help.

We are researching the topic of public engagement and want to hear your views of how well your city and the county of Marin engage with you.

Public engagement is a range of methods through which government agencies provide the public with more and better information about their decisions and meaningful opportunities to influence those decisions.

Today, local governments throughout California are applying a variety of public engagement strategies to address issues ranging from land use and budgeting to climate change and public safety. They are discovering a number of benefits that can result from the successful engagement of their residents in local decision-making.

We invite you to express your views by completing a quick survey. The voluntary feedback not only assists the Marin County Civil Grand Jury but, ultimately, the area in which you live.

If you reside in one of our 11 cities or incorporated towns, type the following URL into your browser and complete the survey:

If you reside in unincorporated Marin, type the following URL into your browser and complete the survey:

Please submit your completed survey by March 25.

If you have questions, send email to: Thank you for your time.
