In a new survey of Troutdale residents, 82% of survey respondents gave Troutdale a positive performance rating (excellent 20%, pretty good 62%). The Nelson Report, the public opinion research firm that conducted the survey for the City of Troutdale, said this high performance rating ranked in the top two percent of all city performance ratings conducted by the Nelson Report.
A total of 353 respondents were interviewed between February 2 and February 8, 2008.
