Resident survey

Corvias Military Living is asking all residents to complete the 2016 Headquarters Department of the Army Residential Communities Initiative Resident Survey. The survey gives on-post residents an opportunity to provide feedback to the Army, RCI and Corvias Military Living on how their housing needs are being met.

An electronic survey will be emailed to all residents May 5. Residents who do not receive a survey or who have questions should contact their community office. Residents must fill out and submit the online survey by June 6.

The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete. It will ask questions on topics such as residents’ evaluation of their present home, community amenities, resident activities, the community maintenance team and property management team, among others.

All survey answers are strictly confidential and residents are urged to offer honest responses. Personal data is not tabulated and the survey does not identify the resident in any way.

The DMPO will continue to provide desk-side briefings for Soldiers who do not receive orders in time to attend a group briefing. Command teams with Soldiers who cannot attend a regularly scheduled briefing due to time constraints should call 255-3939, 255-9182 or 255-3115.
