Children's Participation in Community Meetings


The Austin City Council hopes to provide supervised children’s activities at the public meetings it hosts.  This survey is designed for anyone who cares for children under 13 years old (parent, guardian, etc.).  This survey will help the City understand the community’s needs and wishes to ensure it can provide the right kinds of services to families with children.  Thanks for your participation!
