The 2022 MRV Wellbeing Survey is Live!

Have your voice heard on important community issues! The survey will be open until June 10.

The purpose of the Dashboard is to improve overall wellbeing and resilience in the Mad River Valley by supporting the ability of community members and decision-makers to review and incorporate local data.

The Mad River Valley Community Dashboard (originally the "MRV Community Indicators Project") is a new initiative of the MRV Planning District launched in summer 2020. The project aims to incorporate community voices and vision to help answer the question, "How is the Mad River Valley doing?"

By collecting and aggregating a range of local data into one accessible website, community members can more easily find, share and utilize this information.

The Dashboard also hosts the MRV Wellbeing Survey, our own survey tool which helps fill in the gaps of local qualitative data.
