Every few years, Lone Tree sends a survey to its residents to help understand how the city is perceived. The results are in and Lone Tree continues to impress its 5,731 households (as of 2016).

More than 21% of the households in Lone Tree responded to the latest survey, with about 97% rating the overall quality of life as “good” or “excellent.”  This is consistent with previous results, which have been between 96-98% since 2006.

Other categories that received a “good” or “excellent” score from at least 87% of residents included cleanliness, overall appearance, overall image and reputation, shopping opportunities and ease of light rail travel.

Of those who responded to the survey, 96% are likely to recommend living in Lone Tree to someone who asks and 86% are likely to remain in Lone Tree for the next five years.

Recreational opportunities were given “good” or “excellent” ratings from 85% of respondents, a rating that was much higher than the national and Front Range averages. 77% of respondents used recreation trails at least once in the last 12 months, and 76% of those used the Bluffs Regional Park and Trail System (pictured above).

Areas in which residents expressed concern: population growth, traffic congestion and the preservation of city history.

Survey results are expected to be made available on the city’s website, www.cityoflonetree.com.
