Comprehensive Plan Vision Statement

San Juan County Dept. of Community Development has posted an online survey to check-in on the Comprehensive Plan Vision Statement. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The survey is intended to allow you to give input on the Vision Statement. Residents that attended the October Workshops will find that this survey builds on the conversation they started at those events.

A summary report of the results of this survey and the accompanying Vision Statement outreach work will be presented to County Council on December 11 and Planning Commission on December 15. Following these presentations, the public will be able to comment on the findings as the county continues to check-in on its Vision Statement. Please let Adam Zack know if you have any questions about this survey at adamz@sanjuanco.com.
