Scouting the Future
Cody has been selected by the Wyoming Business Council and University of Wyoming Extension to participate in a Community Review. This is an amazing opportunity for our community to receive expert insight and guidance on creating a locally driven vision for our future.
Some residents of the Cody area will receive a postcard containing the web address to a survey. The survey will give us valuable information about what is important to people in the area. Please fill it out when you receive it.
Our future in Cody is defined by our wants and needs. The review team would like to hear from you! Join us at one of the listening sessions below and answer a few simple questions about your dreams for the future of Cody. You are welcome to attend any session; the topics below are suggestions for each session.
