Outdoor Recreation Facilities Public Input Survey - Complete

A public input survey was available online from mid-January through March 15, 2018. A paper copy of the survey was also sent to 150 households across Morton County. The purpose of the survey was to gather input from a wide range of county residents and park & trail users about the future of Morton County outdoor recreation facilities. We reached our goal of 500 surveys completed! Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey!

Overall survey results are here.

Selected results, broken down by area, are here.
