Jackson County Wisconsin, 08.09.2023 – We are pleased to announce an important step towards shaping a brighter future for Jackson County through the launch of an in-depth survey and request for your active participation in the development of our comprehensive plan.

Jackson County is committed to supporting our communities, and to facilitate this growth, we are initiating a detailed survey designed to capture the diverse perspectives, hopes, and concerns of our residents, businesses, and stakeholders. This survey serves as a foundation for building a Comprehensive Plan that reflects our collective vision for the years to come.

Key objectives of the survey include:

1. Participation: We are committed to ensuring that every voice in our community is heard. The survey is open to all, providing an opportunity for residents, local leaders, businesses, and organizations to contribute their insights, goals and ideas.

2. Understanding: The survey will delve into a wide range of topics, including housing, transportation, economic development, child care, education, environmental sustainability, and planned growth.

3. Our Future: This Survey and the resulting plan will address both the current challenges and those that lie ahead. The insights collected through the survey will guide our strategic decisions in pursuit of planned growth, a sustainable future and a better Jackson County for our children and grandchildren.

    “This survey is essential to gain community input for the comprehensive planning process. We invite every member of our community to actively engage in this effort. Your input, ideas, and perspectives are essential as we make investments in the future of your community.” ~Jon Bingol MRRPC Executive Director
