WCCD Seeks Input from Residents in Natural Resource Survey

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Megan DeLeeuw for the information in this story.)

 Every five years, the Washtenaw County Conservation District (WCCD) conducts a resource assessment survey to identify natural resource/environmental concerns in Washtenaw County, how residents use WCCD, and how WCCD can best assist residents.

Since Washtenaw County residents approved a .02 mil, 6-year levy in 2020, the results of this survey will determine tax dollar spending. The data will be used to inform WCCD’s strategic plan for the next five years and guide the types of programs and assistance offered.

This year, WCCD is making a concerted effort to capture a representative sample of the population by sending survey requests to a random selection of 6,000 residents across Washtenaw County.

As thanks for completing the survey, respondents can choose to provide their contact information for a chance to win one of ten $100 Visa gift cards.

In addition, the WCCD is continuing to seek feedback from our engaged stakeholder groups, including those who subscribe to the e-newsletter; governmental staff; environmental and partner organizations; and farmers.  To maintain an unbiased sample, WCCD asks anyone who might receive multiple invitations to please take the survey only once.

The survey will close on June 30.

Individual answers will be kept strictly confidential, but aggregate locality (i.e. township, city, and village) level data may be shared with other local government or non-profit partners to inform program development and better serve the residents of Washtenaw County.

If a respondent chooses to share an e-mail address or phone number, the WCCD will not sell or give away any for solicitations.

The WCCD is a local unit of government, assisting private landowners, businesses, and others, with management of their natural resources in Washtenaw County. This District is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

Information on the Conservation District is available online at www.washtenawcd.org.

Please contact the WCCD with any questions at 734-302-8715 or [email protected].
