Ford City Comprehensive Plan Survey

A plan is being developed to make Ford City a better place for people to live in, move to, and visit. The planning process is being conducted in partnership with Fourth Economy Consulting, a firm from Pittsburgh. More information is available on the Ford City website. This survey will help determine priorities for the planning effort; we are interested in hearing the opinions of residents, former residents and visitors! 

In this survey, there are a couple different types of questions:
  • Optional questions are helpful for the survey but more personal. It is your choice to answer.
  • Small text boxes can be answered with 1 to 10 words.
