Goldendale Horizons Project to Ask for Community Views

As part of its Horizons Project working with local citizens to improve the quality of life in Goldendale, Washington State University Extension will be gathering input from as many community members as possible. Horizons is a community leadership program designed to assist small rural and reservation communities enhance their local economies and quality of life.

A brief survey is being mailed to area citizens this month to ask for their opinions on promoting positive change in the community. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the responses will be kept completely anonymous. A summary of the results will be provided to the community’s Horizons Project Committee to help inform their efforts to plan for Goldendale’s future.

“We hope that everyone will take a few minutes to complete and return the survey,” said Ava Van Velsor, Horizons Community Coach for Klickitat County. “The more input we receive the better our plans will reflect the opinions and desires of our community. It’s a chance for everyone to be heard.”
