Public invited to take online survey on Baraga County planning

HOUGHTON -- An online survey is available for the public to provide input for the Baraga County Strategic Plan.

The plan, being developed by the Western Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR), will propose realistic, implementable economic development strategies and projects to move the county forward. All local governments, KBIC (Keweenaw Bay Indian Community), and a wide variety of community organizations and institutions are involved.

Public involvement is vitally important to this effort! The best way to become involved is to take the survey at www.gobaragacounty.com and help spread the word. Respondents can enter to win a drawing for one of four $50 gift cards for local businesses.

Planning will be most effective if a large percentage of Baraga County residents -- and others familiar with the county -- take part. You need not be a resident of Baraga County to participate. The survey will remain open until Nov. 30.

For further information on the Strategic Plan, contact WUPPDR Planner Jerald Wuorenmaa at jwuorenmaa@wuppdr.org or 906.482.7205, ext. 319.
