The Rockdale County Board of Commissioners is seeking the public’s input on ways to improve the quality of life in the county.
Recently, the board appointed members to the Rockdale County Strategic Plan Taskforce, a team charged with collecting citizen input through a survey to improve the Rockdale community. The survey went live on the county’s website (rockdalecountyga.gov) on May 1 and will be available through June 20.
The survey asks citizens and stakeholders to give feedback in the following subject areas: Public Safety, Economic Development, Quality of Life, Transportation/ Infrastructure, Education/ Workforce Development, and Transparency.
“We need to be proactive in establishing the County’s plans for the future. The citizens have every right to be put first in this process,” Rockdale Board of Commissioners (BOC) Chairman Oz Nesbitt said. “This survey gives every resident of Rockdale County the opportunity to voice their opinion regarding the vision of where they work, live, and play.”
