I am a master’s student at the University of Illinois from La Moille, a rural town in northcentral Illinois. As someone who cares about small towns and has farming roots, my research team and I have partnered with the Jasper County Conservation Board to better understand growth and change in Jasper County. The Jasper County Conservation Board and other county-wide organizations want to learn about your preferences for community growth.
Jasper County is experiencing development in housing, recreational trails and conservation areas, and a gradual increase in jobs. All these factors may have different impacts on your everyday experience and economy of the county. We want to hear your preferences for the future of Jasper County.
We recently mailed 1,500 questionnaires to randomly selected residents of Jasper County. If you received a questionnaire, please consider completing and returning it. Your opinions matter. Your knowledge, experiences, and views of the county will help local decision-makers plan for their future.
