"Rising as a Region" - A Regional Comprehensive Plan for
the Mississippi River Region 2014-2034

Comprehensive Plan Survey
In March 2011 the MRRPC sponsored a 80 plus question survey that was mailed to 4,059
households in the nine county region.  The survey was conducted to gauge resident
opinions on such issues as: incentives for business and industry, shifting of the property
tax burden to other sources, recreation and tourism opportunities that would be most
accepted and successful, preferred land use development patterns, forms of alternative
energy sources that would be most accepted and successful, and how residents view the
existing and forsee the future quality of life in their community.

The survey information will be used to assist residents and local elected officials make
better informed choices on how to handle continued growth and development and help us
regionally plan.  The survey achieved a margin of error of 2.6% for the nine county region
as a whole and 7- 8.4%margin of error range among the individual nine counties with a
95% confidence interval.
