INTRODUCTION

 WELCOME TO THE 'TRANSFORMING TOMORROW TOGETHER - GREATER MANKATO 2040'
REGIONAL COMMUNITY SURVEY 



This survey is the first step in a regional planning effort, called the 'Transforming Tomorrow Together - Greater Mankato 2040' initiative. It is a robust and forward-looking planning process that aims to explore the future strategic positioning of the Greater Mankato region, and to create an enduring inclusive vision and roadmap to the future. We are initially defining the region as a one-hour radius (60-70 miles) around Mankato, and seeking input about the future of this region from residents and stakeholders
 
The 'Transforming Tomorrow Together - Greater Mankato 2040' initiative aims to tackle some big questions, such as:
How does the Greater Mankato region best position itself for the future?
How do we need to evolve as a regional community to stay relevant, attractive and successful, for a wide cross section of people? 
What role can we play in solving the grand challenges of the future?
 
As part of these initial steps in the 'Transforming Tomorrow Together - Greater Mankato 2040' regional initiative, we would like to understand your perspective about the future of the Greater Mankato region.
 
PLEASE NOTE: We are asking a series of in-depth questions. There are 28 questions, and it will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete . The survey will time-out if you leave it open (and incomplete). You cannot save a partial survey and come back to it later. We recommend you find a comfortable place; allow some uninterrupted time and share your thoughts and views. 
 
We really appreciate your input and effort in completing this very important survey.
 
WE PLAN TO KEEP THE SURVEY OPEN UNTIL end of October, 2022
