Please take a few minutes to complete the NHCOG’s Regional Plan of Conservation and Development resident input survey by visiting northwesthillscog.org. The anonymous survey responses will be used to determine what issues are most important to residents including housing, jobs, land conservation, local food, and vibrant Main Streets. It should only take about 10 minutes to respond. NHCOG will use the survey responses to determine priority strategies that should be carried out to achieve the region’s goals together with our towns, regional non-profits, and residents. Over the next 10 years, NHCOG will assist our towns with carrying out these strategies and support our partner agencies in their work to meet these goals. For more info or to take the survey visit www.northwesthillscog.org. The town with the most survey responses wins an ice cream social!
