We Need You For A Focus Group

Cairo is working with Five Rule Planning to conduct three studies. A comprehensive plan, a housing study, and a community needs assessment.

Five Rule Planning is reaching out to a number of Cairo Community residents asking them to participate in community focus groups. These focus groups meet briefly and provide feedback on the past, current, and future community needs.

This data is recorded to develop a community needs assessment survey. Cairo residents are invited and are encouraged to participate in the survey when it becomes available. Survey data is used as a tool for the Village Board to make decisions, community groups to make improvements, and provide data required to access funding.
