City of Beloit Comprehensive Plan - The Beloit City Council appointed a Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee to begin updating the City's 2008 Comprehensive Plan, which is available here.
 
The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee developed a public opinion survey that will be used in revising the plan that will guide the City's development and redevelopment over the next decade. We are especially focused on encouraging the development, redevelopment, preservation and rehab of housing in the City. The survey is available in English and Spanish, and should take no more than five minutes to complete. Please contact Drew Pennington, Director of Planning and Building Services if you have questions:  608-364-6711

Survey - The Beloit Police Department is working with Community Development and Community Action on the city of Beloit's Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) plan. NRSA is a tool to use Community Block Grant funds in a way that would most benefit the outlined neighborhoods stated in the plan. NRSA is focusing on the Hackett and Merrill neighborhoods. The Police Department asks citizens who live and/or work in the Hackett and Merrill Neighborhoods to complete a survey to measure the level of fear in these neighborhoods. Please click here for a link to the Police Department's page, where you will have a choice to take the survey in English or Spanish. 

Conversations with the Community - Have you had a chance to attend one of the "Conversations with the Community" events? These informal, on-going "conversations" are hosted by the Beloit Police Department, with support from the Pastoral Advisory Team, and open to the public. 

The Police Department has developed a survey and they are very interested in your feedback.  Please click here for a link to the survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BeloitPoliceConversationswithCommunity
