Quality of Life Survey

Ellis County residents are generally satisfied with the quality of life in Ellis County across various indicators, according to a recent survey commissioned by the Imagine Ellis County Committee.

“One of the things we felt like we needed to do was kind of level set, do a survey as to where things stand,” said Grow Hays executive director Doug Williams. “We were fortunate enough to get a grant from the Schmidt Foundation to give us some money to engage the Docking Institute to do a quality-of-life survey for us.”
