Community Survey Going to Cody Residents
Written by wendycorr on September 10, 2019
How do you envision Cody in 5, 10 or 20 years?
That’s the question being posed to residents by the Wyoming Business Council and the University of Wyoming Extension Office, who are hosting listening sessions in October to begin forming a development strategy for the community’s future.
Cody Mayor Matt Hall says the listening sessions will allow Cody’s residents to have a say in what the future of their community looks like. He pointed out that the same type of process was utilized about ten years ago, with then-mayor Nancy Tia Brown spearheading a Cody 2020 report. He says now that it’s almost 2020, it’s time to re-assess where we are.
Hall adds that a survey will go out this week to about 2200 random households in the form of a postcard. He encourages those who receive those postcards to thoughtfully complete the survey, as he says it will provide valuable information about what is important to the people of our community.
Hall says the review team will hold public meetings and open houses before presenting a written report to community leaders. The report will outline recommendations and offer customized assistance, such as funding and grant opportunities as well as guidance on best practices and leadership strategies.
