Hello and Thank You for taking a quick survey about your community!
 
This survey is one component of the broader Nevada Economic Assessment Project (NEAP). The NEAP program compiles socioeconomic baseline data for every county in Nevada for the purpose of assisting local governments in planning, economic development, grant-writing, or in support of a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).  
 
In addition to secondary data sources such as Census Data, information also needs to be gathered from community residents to make informed decisions for economic development. This survey is designed to gather your valuable input about what are the strengths (i.e., assets) in your community.
 
Assets can be something concrete, like a historic building, or a favorite hunting camp. Assets can also be intangible items like community values or volunteer groups. Assets help to create our quality of life and well-being. Every community has assets. We need your help in identifying your community assets. The information gathered from community members can be used to create impact reports for potential economic development, such as mining, recreational tourism, etc.

Assets are divided into six categories (i.e., values, people, places, play, economic and groups). A virtual community workshop with county staff, community members and local decision makers was held on April 2, 2021 to gather some initial ideas on community assets. Each asset category will have a graphical display of some preliminary assets identified. We hope this will help kick-start some of your own ideas.
 
We are conducting an abbreviated asset mapping process. Think of this survey as a "Snapshot" of Assets (i.e., a snapshot of assets for your community at this particular point in time).
 
Your responses will be completely anonymous and can not be linked back to you in anyway. The survey is estimated to take 15 minutes of your time. The results will be summarized and made available with residents and local decision makers in a final report.

Thank you again for your input and taking the time to share your ideas!
