Regional Comprehensive Plans

"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.
