Community Survey Ends May 5

First announced in January, the Elkins Community Needs Survey is a partner project between Elkins Community Network, Mayor Troy Reed/City of Elkins, and the Community Development Institute at the University of Central Arkansas. We worked together to create a community leadership team comprising of school officials, health officials, business leaders, first responders, parents, and more. This leadership team helped create the survey and has worked to get it in the hands of as many community members as possible.


The questions are quick and the survey can be taken anonymously. It seeks input from residents of residents of the City of Elkins and/or the Elkins School District. You have to be a resident of just one of those entities. The questions ask about the community strengths, needs, and culture. 


 CDI is also helping the city with an economic development plan. As our community grows, we want to know what the biggest needs, wants, and ideas are!
