The first phase will be an online survey open to any resident of the county. Residents will be asked what they like best and least about their communities, and what improvements they desire.The survey can be completed online in a few minutes. Those who want to participate can find a link at until July 30. Eagle County includes the broader El Jebel area, parts of Basalt and the Fryingpan Valley and part of Missouri Heights in the Roaring Fork Valley.The second part of the project will be a telephone survey of a random sample of 400 county residents. The county has hired a market research firm, Research & Polling Inc., to perform the work.
