Take the Community Values Survey on future development and growth management

October 4, 2011

Students in the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Department are administering and analyzing a survey to help understand how people living in Northern Colorado want to see the area grow. The students are a service-learning team working with Embrace Northern Colorado.

Embrace Northern Colorado is a non-partisan community planning coalition with members from Weld and Larimer counties. The purpose of the survey is to identify:

  1. attitudes related to general planning and development issues,
  2. issues with the greatest need for improvement, and
  3. the core values of citizens in Larimer and Weld counties.
A few questions

It is very important that the campus community has input into the future of this area; students, faculty and staff are highly encouraged to take 5-10 minutes to answer a few questions about their preferences for how the area should grow.

Embrace Northern Colorado is taking a resident-driven approach to creating scenarios and recommending decisions that will enrich the future of our region and positively affect the lives of area residents.

Survey link

The survey will be open until midnight on Oct. 14, 2011.

The survey is being administered and analyzed by students in the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Department at Colorado State University.

As a partner, these students will compile the data received and present the results to the Embrace Northern Colorado Leadership Task Force on Wednesday, Oct. 19. The survey results will be aggregated to describe community values holistically, so all responses are anonymous and confidential.

We sincerely hope that you take time to complete the survey, because your opinion matters!
