    The 2014 Local Environment Survey is part of a larger research effort, affiliated with University of Washington's Evans School of Public Affairs. The purpose of this research is to better understand what local governments in the United States are doing to protect the environment, and why. Only a few local governments have been selected to participate in this survey, so your participation is valuable.

    If you have any questions or concerns about this research, you can contact the lead researcher (Ryan Bodanyi) at (401) 829-6192 or by email.
