For communities to thrive they need to engage their citizens from the ground up and bring diverse voices to the decision-making table.

Monticello will be participating in the Community Catalyst program, in partnership with Entergy and the University of Central Arkansas Center for Community and Economic Development. The Community Catalyst program will utilize grassroots citizen engagement and technical assistance training to develop small, actionable community and economic development goals to serve as a catalyst for longer-term economic development engagements and priorities.

The first step of this process is to identify your top priorities through a 2-3 minute survey, below. All survey responses are anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself. Following the survey, we encourage you to participate in the Community Catalyst process.

By entering your contact information, you are entering in a chance to win one of three $50 gift cards!
