TALK TO US! We want to hear your thoughts on growth, development, transportation, hazard mitigation, and community infrastructure projects Currently, there are four surveys running, and we need your feedback! Pick one, pick all four, but make your opinion heard!

Comprehensive Plan: The comp plan, as we call it, is the county's guiding document for land use and development in the unincorporated areas of Weld County. And because we know more people means more traffic, we are also going to solicit information from county residents regarding transportation infrastructure and maintenance as we look at our transportation plan as well. Learn more at www.weld2020vision.com. Survey link: https://slatecommunications.formstack.com/…/weld_county_com…

Comprehensive Plan Goals: Based on the input we've received to-date, we've developed 10 goals to potentially include in the comprehensive plan. By including a goal in the plan, Weld County can develop programs and policies that specifically support each goal. Let us know what you think! Learn more at www.weld2020vision.com. Survey link: https://slatecommunications.formstack.com/…/weld_county_com…

Hazard Mitigation Plan Update: Weld County is updating the 2016 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan in collaboration with local municipalities, fire departments, school districts, and other community organizations. This plan is designed to reduce the risks posed by hazards that affect our county and must be updated and approved by FEMA every five years to keep it current and to maintain eligibility for certain types of disaster assistance. Hazard mitigation planning helps residents, business owners, elected officials, and municipal departments think through how to plan, design, build, and establish partnerships for risk reduction. Learn more at https://www.weldgov.com/…/office_of_emerg…/hazard_mitigation. Take the survey at this link: https://www.surveygizmo.com/…/Weld-County-Public-Hazard-Ris…

Community Development Block Grant Program: Weld County has received an Urban County Designation from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This means the county is eligible to receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds once a Consolidated Plan is submitted and approved by HUD. An Urban County must be at least 200,000 in population not including Entitlement Cities. Once a Consolidated Plan is approved, the county anticipates receiving around $960,200 each year from 2021 to 2023 and beyond. Weld County will establish a grant program for eligible participating jurisdictions. We want to know what projects you think are needed throughout the county.

It's OK to talk about suicide. Thoughts of giving up and suicide can be frightening, but it's important to remember that suicidal thoughts are a symptom — just like any other — that is treatable and can improve over time. Not taking these kinds of thoughts seriously and talking about them can have devastating outcomes. For more information on how to break the stigma of talking about suicide, go to www.weldgov.com/go/LetsTalk.

Join the commissioners on Monday, September 21, at 5:00 p.m. for a telephone town hall/COVID-19 update. All Weld County residents are invited to participate. Some residents will receive an automated call with a message from Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman inviting them to join the event. Vekeo, the vendor providing the telephone town hall service, will initiate calls to some Weld County residents just prior to the event starting on Monday evening. Vekeo accesses phone numbers from Weld County registered voter lists and will randomly select 52,000 phone numbers to call for the event. All county residents, however, are invited to call in and participate. Read more at www.weldgov.com.
