The Blackford County Community Foundation is seeking your input about life in Blackford County. The Foundation has released a short survey that residents are asked to complete prior to Thursday, October 31st, about the quality of life in Blackford County. The information received will be used by community leaders to determine the focus of a large funding request from the Lilly Endowment Inc. that will be awarded in spring of 2020.
“The Foundation hopes to hear from residents throughout Blackford County about what they love, don’t love and would change about Blackford County,” said Elizabeth Whitt, Executive Director of the Blackford County Community Foundation.
Residents can complete the survey on the Blackford County Community Foundation website on the Community Survey page or in person at the Foundation’s office at 121 N. High Street in Hartford City. The Foundation is working with local partners like the Blackford County Schools, Blackford Youth Sports, and the Farm Bureau to reach residents.
Residents are also encouraged to attend a public meeting on Wednesday, November 20th at 6:00 PM at City Hall in Hartford City to learn results of the survey.
