Valley Visioning Survey - Please Read This Important Information

You have the unique opportunity to weigh in on the future of our community, while also earning funds for our school. This fall, Envision Utah is helping Utah Valley residents and stakeholders create a vision for the future as we add nearly 1 million people to our population over the next 50 years. This effort – called Valley Visioning – has culminated into the Valley Visioning survey, Click here for the link: 

This survey gives Utah Valley residents the chance to weigh in on growth-related issues important to our future. It will serve as the foundation for a vision with specific strategies which will help ensure Utah Valley remains a great place to call home, now and in the future.

The survey is also a good chance for us to get support for our school. Please take the survey and type in our school’s name at the end. For every survey completed by a parent, teacher, or student 13 years or older, Ancestry and Adobe (in partnership with Envision Utah) have agreed to donate $1.50 to our school. This is a great opportunity for each of us to share our voices to define our future. Please take the survey and share it with your friends, family, and everyone you know!
