Community Review

Scouting the Future

Cody was selected by the Wyoming Business Council and University of Wyoming Extension to participate in a Community Review. This has been an amazing opportunity for our community to receive expert insight and guidance on creating a locally driven vision for our future..


Some residents of the Cody area received a postcard containing the web address to a survey. The survey provided us with valuable information about what is important to people in the area. Initial results of that survey are summarized in the documents below:

Phase 1 Report
Strategic Doing Strategy

Participating communities receive up to $1,000 to implement a project identified as a need by their review.


REACH agreements about community priorities and economic development opportunities.

SUPPORT future grant applications with an objective, professional assessment of local conditions and opportunities.

IDENTIFY sources of funding for technical assistance and best practices.

IMPROVE community decision making and leadership strategies.

INCREASE the number of residents involved in community organizations and projects.

STRENGTHEN relationships with agencies that provide funding and assistance.
