The Orange County Long-Term Recovery Group has identified potential strategies for recovering from COVID-19 and needs your input on which strategies best meet the community’s needs.
Community members are asked to take a 10-minute online survey between Nov. 24 and Dec. 11.
The survey contains a draft list of recovery strategies and asks the public to evaluate the importance of each. Survey results will be used to determine the priority order of strategies in a long-term recovery and transformation plan being developed by the Long-Term Recovery Group. The group is a partnership of nearly 150 community stakeholders, Orange County and the towns of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough.
The strategies for recovering from the pandemic will be further refined by representatives of historically underserved communities in coordination with the group’s smaller working groups.
Members of the community are asked to share this survey with their networks ― particularly within communities of color or historically underserved groups ― to help obtain input from all community members.
An assessment of COVID-19’s impacts thus far in Orange County shows the pandemic appears to be exacerbating pre-pandemic issues in health, the economy, housing, and social services. The work of the Long-Term Recovery Group can be seen on the group’s website, orangencforward.org.
