Demographics & Community Values Questions

Lake County is working to understand and maintain what community members value most, while the county grows and prospers.

This survey is designed to begin understanding your priorities and attitudes about the things that make Lake County special. We want to hear what community members value most so that partners can work together to build a future on that common ground. 

In addition, we know that 2020 was the most destructive wildfire season in state history, we would also like to hear your perspective on forest health and action to reduce the risk of severe wildfire.

Lake County visitor spending is up 48% from 2019 to 2015 (from $29.9M to $44.3M) or about 10% per year.  This increase in visitors is likely to impact recreation assets. Considering how fundamental recreation is to our quality of life, we want to understand your perspectives on recreation opportunities and issues.

Thank you for taking your time to help us plan for the future, because HOW we support the community matters.
