El Paso County has launched a two-year project to develop a county Master Plan, the county said in a news release.

Part of that effort involves an online survey, that you can access here. The survey, which includes a version for residents and one for businesses, asks what you like and don't like about the way things are going in the county. Do you want more apartments? Would you like to see more retail, office space, industry?

The idea behind the survey is to help officials map out a future plan, says Planning and Community Development Executive Director Craig Dossey in a release.

The website link above also will take you to information about public meetings and other material.

From the release:

The Master Plan development process will take about two years to complete and will include dozens of opportunities for citizens to voice their views. However, the online survey is a fast, effective, and convenient way for citizens to participate in the planning process.

The County Master Plan is broad and will examine County land use, infrastructure, water capacity, transportation networks, government services, and other important topics. The aim of the Master Plan is to better serve and accommodate the needs of residents, businesses, and visitors to the County. The Master Plan will integrate and expand on concepts from the current Countywide Policy Plan and several recent plans and studies. Examples include the Major Transportation Corridors Plan (2016) and the Parks Master Plan (2013), as well as other ongoing County initiatives, like the Water Master Plan (2018) and broadband strategic plan efforts.
