Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC)  launched a regional survey for residents of Central Oregon in partnership with the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center (OVBC). The purpose of this important regional survey is to gather input on some of the tough issues we’re grappling with in Central Oregon, as well as  the values and beliefs of our community members. A prize drawing consisting of five $100 Visa gift cards will be offered to those who complete the survey. The information collected from the survey is confidential and will help leadership and organizations in Central Oregon better serve our communities.

Central Oregonians can respond to the survey directly through this link by November 9. The survey will  take about 10 minutes to complete, and covers nine different topic areas: the economy, houseless services, housing, transportation, childcare, resilience, tourism, services from your local government, and general values and beliefs. It is open for response until 5pm on November 16. We encourage everyone to make a profile on OVBC’s panelist page to receive future surveys and earn cash-value points from OVBC, but this is not required.
