Information from the Strategic Planning Process

As part of its strategic planning process, Douglas County has launched an online survey to garner feedback and input from the public. The County encourages each and every member of the public to Leave a Legacy by sharing your thoughts, opinions, and ideas about the future of Douglas County.

Click here to take the survey. Update: The survey is now closed. Thank you for your feedback!

The strategic plan creates a shared vision between the residents of Douglas County and their elected officials. This five-year document will serve as an operational roadmap for the future. It is designed to evolve over time in response to the changing needs of the organization and the community.

The County is providing many opportunities to get involved in the conversation to help ensure that the public’s voice is reflected in the plan. We invite the public to Leave a Legacy by providing feedback on the issues that they believe are important.

In addition to the online survey, there are multiple venues and opportunities for the public to get involved!
