MONROE - As part of the city of Monroe's on-going Comprehensive Planning process, Southwestern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is conducting a community survey to gather opinions about potential services and developments within the city of Monroe.

The survey, an extension of the 14 input and listening sessions held from June to September, will provide input specifically directed at the goals, objectives and strategies generated during these meetings.

This survey, supported by SWWRPC's partners at the City of Monroe, Green County Development Corporation and University of Wisconsin Extension, is also supported through a donation by the Monroe Times, which will run the full-page survey in an upcoming edition.

"Community planning is an integral component of a healthy democracy, allowing residents to directly inform and cultivate their future," said Troy Maggied, SWWRPC's Planning Program Manager. "Critical to this process is strong support from the local media, or in the case of rural America, the local paper. The Monroe Times has provided thorough coverage during the planning process and helped share the evolving discussion with the city's residents. Just as planning requires informed public input, implementation of the plan requires public, private, and non-profit collaboration. Through their generous donation of space for the survey, the Times is also providing a great example for other private companies and community partners to follow."

English and Spanish versions of the survey will be available at the Monroe Public Library, City Hall, and online at (English) and (Spanish). The survey opened Monday and will continue to be available through Nov. 13.
