We Will Park County

In 2018, the Park County Community Foundation launched We Will Park County, a citizen-driven initiative that highlights a common vision for the future of Park County.  The Park County Community Foundation articulated this community vision after hearing thoughts from more than 700 community members including: discussions with nonprofits and other community leaders; a county-wide survey with more than 640 responses; and six focus groups in Livingston, Clyde Park, Wilsall, Emigrant, Gardiner and Cooke City.

Since the initiative started, the We Will Park County community vision and data dashboard have been used to guide discussions and inform community action.

We are once again seeking input on current concerns and needs of Park County and have launched a new community-wide survey to hear what matters most to Park County residents.

*Everyone who responds to the survey will have the option to be entered into a random drawing for one of five $100 VISA gift cards.

 

Every day, local non-profits, schools, health care providers, businesses and governments make plans about the future.  But in many instances these decisions are not coordinated with other entities, nor striving towards mutual goals or based on a common set of data.

We Will Park County is a citizen-driven initiative of the Park County Community Foundation that offers a common vision and data set to help coordinate the limited resources of these hard working entities.  Think of this project as a useful tool, or a common language that everyone in Park County can use to better inform, coordinate and develop solutions for Park County’s most pressing needs.
