Take the Heart & Soul Survey THIS MONTH
And make sure YOUR voice is heard!
Madison County Heart & Soul is an initiative that recognizes that our county is diverse and made up of individual communities, rural areas, and neighborhoods. Heart & Soul’s purpose is to honor community pride as we develop a county-wide future that represents what matters most to the residents. The Heart & Soul organizers feel that the best way to identify Madison County’s distinctive character—and find the means to protect it—is to listen to people who live in the communities of the county.
You can help define the Heart & Soul of your community and Madison County by completing short, anonymous survey, but you need to do it soon!
This is the “Last call” to Winterset residents to complete this survey. After the end of September, the survey will close and the results will be collected and processed. Don’t miss your chance to share your thoughts in this important process. You can find everything you want to know about the process, and the survey, at the Madison County Heart & Soul website.
