Community Engagement



Community Input Survey - February 19 through April 16


Clay County and Metro COG have developed a brief online community input survey to help better understand what issues are important throughout the county. This survey should take about 10 to 15 minutes, with an opportunity to provide in-depth feedback on many questions. This survey will be open until Friday, April 16.

If you would like a free paper copy of the survey mailed to you, please call or email us.

After the community input survey closes, our team will prepare and provide a summary of survey results in early May.


Virtual Community Engagement Meetings - March 23


Clay County and Metro COG held two virtual community input meetings on Tuesday, March 23.  Both meetings provided the public an opportunity to be involved in planning for the future of Clay County, hear from fellow neighbors and stakeholders, and offer their input and ideas.

Each meeting included a brief introductory presentation followed by an interactive visioning workshop to develop written and visual statements about the County’s long-term goals and strategic objectives.

This was the first of two rounds of public engagement during the planning process.

If you missed one of the first round meetings and want to get an update of the discussion, please watch the recording of the March 23, 2021, 5:30 p.m. meeting below:


A majority of the time spent during the public engagement meetings on March 23, 2021, was on the visioning board exercise.  This engagement exercise provided an opportunity for meeting participants to provide feedback about Clay County and the most pressing issues/opportunities.  Please click the image below to view the feedback received:



Future Engagement Opportunities


Clay County and Metro COG are tentatively looking at holding pop-up meetings for the comprehensive plan this summer. These opportunities would coincide with planned events and festivals throughout Clay County and include informational booths or kiosks where community members can learn more about the plan. These meetings will be dependent on the community's Covid-19 risk and overall health situation at these future times. Our team will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

The next series of formal meetings for the project are scheduled for October.
