Community Alternative Future

In the Community Future, communities across the region focus on the challenges of growing, changing populations. Leaders decide it is time to come together to make sure all members can access opportunity and fulfill their potential. They foster welcoming communities where all members can get the resources they need to succeed. They encourage active, healthy communities with access to outdoor activities, and places where people walk and bike more.

Decide how communities should allocate limited resources by arranging the four actions below in the order of your priorities. Drag the one you think is most important to the top and rank the others under it. (You may also click on the arrows to move each action up or down in importance.) You will have a chance to review and readjust your priorities at the end of the survey.
