Cozad Community Needs Survey
Cozad, Nebraska
July 1-August 19 2021
This survey is being conducted by the Wilson Public Library as part of the Strategic Planning Process required for Library Accreditation by the Nebraska Library Commission, but this survey also includes questions about Cozad as a community. It is open to all residents, age 10 and over, with a Cozad address.

A community needs survey collects the thoughts and opinions of participating residents with regard to what our town (as well as our library) needs in order to thrive. Since not all Cozadians have the same needs, interests, and priorities, this helps to show the greatest needs and highest priorities. The Wilson Public Library will use the data to determine how to best focus our resources and efforts, to assess the success of previously implemented programs, and to decide what new projects to pursue.

If enough responses are recorded, this survey may be shared and used by the Cozad Development Corporation, City of Cozad, Charitable Fund of Cozad, Cozad Chamber of Commerce, and Cozad Community Health System, to influence their short-and long-term action plans to meet the needs of our citizens. Some of the questions come from things these organizations would like to see answered. Our last community needs survey gave critical data to the Cozad Development Corporation and had an impact on securing funding specifically for the new movie theater which opened this year as well as other community projects.

Thank you for your help. This survey will remain live until August 19, 2021
