Vergas is working on a comprehensive plan to guide future development decisions. This survey, designed to be taken by all members of the household of both Vergas and Vergas area residents, allows citizens to provide input on how the community should guide development over the next 15 years.

Your survey answers will be kept completely confidential! The surveys will be tabulated by West Central Initiative. No one from the city will see individual survey results. Only total results of the survey will be used in the comprehensive plan.

This survey will be open through February 28th, 2022. If another member of your household intends to take the survey from the same device, please clear cookies upon completion or change devices to access the survey again.
