May 22, 2023 – Mariposa County is excited to announce community feedback and engagement opportunities to help guide future decision-making.
One of the efforts is the launch of a community survey to gather feedback from residents. The survey is part of an effort to update the strategic plan to reflect the current needs and priorities of the community. The survey will allow for residents to provide feedback on a range of topics including public safety, transportation, services, and more.
“We want to hear from as many residents as possible,” said Dallin Kimble, County Administrative Officer. “Because of this, we are starting with a random sample survey, which will provide unbiased results that can be generalized to understand countywide perspectives. In early June, we will open the survey to all residents so anyone who wants to share feedback will have that opportunity.”
Survey information has been mailed out to residents, which they should expect to see soon. This information will provide details on who should complete the survey and how they can do so online or via mailings. Following the initial collection, the survey will then be opened completely for any and all residents to complete.
“As we begin the process of updating the Mariposa County Strategic Plan, we want to ensure the goals of the county government reflect the goals and values of our community,” Kimble stressed. “With input from the community survey and several town hall meetings that will be scheduled soon, the updated strategic plan will continue to guide County decision-making over the next several years.”
Additionally, Mariposa County has launched a Short-Term Rental survey to better understand how residents and businesses are being impacted by short term rentals. This will be part of a comprehensive analysis of vacation rentals in our community. This survey will be open to residents online through June 14th. Residents without access to internet or computers at home are invited to visit one of our library branches to complete the survey.
“This is part of a larger effort,” shared Mariposa County’s Housing Development Specialist Ben Goger. “We will also be hosting community engagement events around the county for in-person feedback that will allow us to dive even deeper into the conversation about short-term rentals.”
