Help shape the future of our community!

Thank you for participating in this public survey for Our Valley Our Future’s five-year update of the community's vision action plan. Our Valley Our Future is a nonprofit organization that brings together residents to develop a community vision and plan for the future.

The answers from survey respondents like yourself will be compiled and summarized and made available to the public in a final report. All of your information will be compiled anonymously with that of other respondents. 

As part of this survey, we are first going to ask some questions about yourself and then some general questions on your perceptions of our community and its future. We then have a few questions about ways to achieve racial and social equity in the community. And then finally we have a series of questions to pose regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has or will have on your life.

For purposes of inclusion, we are defining "our valley” to include not only the Wenatchee Valley and its communities, but also other nearby communities and rural areas that could be considered part of the wider community and economy of this region.
To start off, tell us a little about yourself!
