This survey asks you to think about how unincorporated* Seminole County could evolve over the next 20 years. How do we think about 20 years of growth, change, and conservation?

Here’s one way to imagine the future: Think of someone you know in Seminole County who is younger (such as a grandchild, niece/nephew, student, customer, or neighbor). Think of how old they will be in 20 years. Imagine what their lifestyle might look like in Seminole County such as where they will live, where they will work, what they will do in their free time, and how they will travel around the County.

Keep this vision in mind as you complete the survey.
