Margaret Wheatley, author and global leader in community development, writes, “There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
In order to plan for Park County’s future, together we first must discover what we care about. Consider your future and share your ideas in a quick survey.
What Do You Care About?
Do you most value public education, healthcare options, public safety, viewscapes, access to outdoor recreation, or job opportunities? Would you like to see more restaurants, more retail, and/ or more recreation activities? Do you want businesses to be locally owned, national chains, or a mix of both?
If your response to these questions was, “I care about one or more of those things”, then you care about planning, zoning, and public services.
What Do You Want For Your Future? Your Family’s Future? Your Business’s Future?
What do you want your life to look like this weekend? Additionally, what do you want it to look like in three years? Moreover in twenty years? Now is the time to voice your opinion on the future of Park County, on your future. Don’t let this moment pass you by, don’t think ten years from now, “What a shame I didn’t speak up when I was asked.”
Park County is in the process of creating a Land Use Plan. This plan is needed to balance this county we call home, Park County, WY. I use the word “balance” because we find ourselves in a pivotal time, a time when Park County’s inevitable growth will influence our way of life and future opportunities.
You will have the opportunity to contribute to the Land Use Plan in each stage of the plan’s development. For example, voicing your opinions, insights, and aspirations for the future of Park County citizens and businesses at public meetings. Additionally, answering this survey and engaging with a Land Use Plan Advisory Committee member. The planners want to hear from you. Your input will be used to design the plan and influence zoning.
You can take the Park County Our County Our Future land use plan survey once. You are encouraged to share this link with your family, friends, and co-workers.
In conclusion, take 15 minutes, gather your thoughts, write them down and click submit. Don’t let the loudest people in the room speak for you. Speak-up for yourself!
