La Crosse County surveys folks about biggest sources of life quality, future threats
Responses will help craft Envision 2050 plan
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — La Crosse County has published an online sustainability survey asking residents what contributes most to their quality of life and what they see as the biggest threats to their future well-being.
The survey is the latest round of public input the county is soliciting to help develop the Envision 2050 Comprehensive Plan.
“We want to hear from you on how you think we can protect our valuable resources for future generations,” said La Crosse County Planner Charlie Handy.
The survey, which should take five minutes or less to complete, asks respondents to prioritize land use, he said. It also asks the public whether they think the county should prioritize protection of natural ecosystems — even if doing so could slow economic growth.
Input from the survey, which has a Nov. 10 deadline, will be used to develop the sustainability chapter of the county’s comprehensive plan, Handy said. The plan is a long-term document that must be updated once a decade.
It describes the existing conditions of the county and lays out a vision to guide future decision-making, Handy said.
